Brazilian Vinagrete Salad

Hello everyone!

As the temperatures rise in the summer (not today, though...), I would like to share the recipe of a vinegar salad typically eaten at barbecues in Brazil. Meat lovers eat it with meat, vegetarians eat it with bread...

I hope you like it!


Cut tomatoes (2 or 3), onions (1), cucumbers (1), you can also add bell peppers (1) if you like. (The numbers give you more or less the proportions.)

Chopped parsley and green onions can also be nice (I sometimes just use Schnittlauch instead of green onions).

Some people like to cut a little bit of chili peppers (I maybe would put a half of a small one.)

I like to either fry (in a bit olive oil) or boil the onions, so they are not so strong. If you like raw onions a lot, then you do not need to do that.

Then you mix everything in a bowl and you must taste all the time until you get it spiced as you like

I add one soup spoon of vinegar. Then I gradually add sugar. Unfortunately I can't tell you how much sugar because it really depends, but I can tell you that one soup spoon of sugar could be a start. When you taste it and if you like the sweetness, you start adding salt, maybe with as little as a very small spoon (tea spoon).

Remember that it takes a bit time to get the sense of sugar and salt, so the ideal is to put some, go away for a few minutes, come back and taste, put more, etc... I feel that within a few minutes the taste "grows."

I also add a bit of olive oil at the end.

You can also substitute the vinegar for lemon juice. It also tastes nice!

Let me know how it came out!
