A version of a traditional Spanish salad, extremely flavorful and refreshing on hot summer days. Sadly but unsurprisingly, I found out in the US that the quality hugely depends on the ingredients. Southern Spain grows amazingly flavorful peppers and onions, and their tomatoes are delicious as well. It is difficult to reproduce outside of the region.
1 can sardines or 4 oz crab sticks
3-4 jalapenos (or local Spanish green peppers)
1 red onion
2-3 large, sweet tomatoes
2 tbsp Spanish extra virgin olive oil
Slice the peppers into 1/8-inch wide slices, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Dice the onions similarly. Toss with 0.5 tsp salt and the olive oil. Allow to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
