I know that.... however, he'd thrown everything else but the kitchen sink into it, I felt it lacked lettuce :cool:

Nice mix, although I'd prefer the carrot at least a little cooked, blanch the pepper briefly too. I agree on the olives and feta.

Where's the garlic? Guess you could rub the bowl with a cut clove....

If you like, you can add lettuce. However, usually there is no lettuce in Mediterranean Chopped Salad.

Try adding feta cheese to the mix. This is my go to for almost any dish and I absolutely love it. Nothing more refreshing than a nice chopped salad
