  1. 3-6 ripe tomatoes
  2. 2-6 green capsicums (Marie always uses a very pale green variety, which I've only seen in Israel)
  3. 4 cloves garlic
  4. [Optional] 1 fresh chilli
  5. 1 lemon, juice only
  6. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  7. salt
  1. roast tomatoes and capisums and peel
  2. add garlic and chilli and chop all together (small)
  3. add lemon juice, olive oil and salt and mix
  1. Robert cools the tomato and capsicum, sprinkles with salt, then peels.
  2. Marie used two crossed knives to cut the salad - like scissors.
