Pepper/Tomato/Olive/Manchego Salad.

On my recent trip to Raleigh, I went through some of my Mom’s new cookbooks. One salad recipe stood out consisting of tomatoes, bell peppers, olives, and manchego cheese.

I added roasted red peppers for a contrast in texture and flavor.

Also, the manchego totally makes this salad.

But you knew that already.
