  • ¼ red onion (thinly sliced)
  • ½ cup peppadew peppers (rough chopped)
  • ½ cup black olives (halved)
  • ½ cup pimento stuffed green olives (halved)
  • 1 cup assorted colorful bell peppers (diced)

  • 10 large basil leaves (shredded)

  • 1 tsp dried italian herbs (I used thyme, oregano, and rosemary )

  1. Whisk the dressing ingredients together and taste to adjust any of them. Add more vinegar if you want a tangier flavor. Set aside.

  3. The salad will keep, well covered, for several days in the refrigerator.
