Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Tomatoes — Choose ripe and juicy tomatoes for the best flavor. If they are not in season, you can use canned diced tomatoes as a substitute.
  • Bell peppers — Use a mix of red, yellow, and green bell peppers to add vibrant colors to the salad. Roasting the peppers before dicing them can enhance their sweetness and smokiness.
  • Paprika — Opt for a high-quality smoked paprika to add a rich and smoky flavor to the dressing.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra kick of flavor, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the dressing.
  • Allow the salad to marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight for even more intense flavors.
  • Serve the Mojete Manchego with crusty bread to soak up the delicious dressing.
  • Customize the salad by adding diced cucumber or olives for additional texture and flavor.
  • If you prefer a milder taste, remove the seeds from the bell peppers before dicing them.
