  Print this Recipe
 Serves: 4-6
400g / 14 oz dried salt cod in 1 piece
6 spring onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp sherry vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice pepper
2 large red peppers, grilled, peeled, deseeded and very finely diced
12 large black olives, pitted and sliced
2 large, juicy tomatoes, thinly sliced
2 tbsp very finely chopped fresh parsley, to garnish

Place the dried salt cod in a large bowl, then cover with cold water and soak for 48 hours, changing the water 3 times a day.

Pat the salt cod very dry with kitchen paper and remove the skin and bones, then use your fingers to tear into fine shreds. Place in a large, non-metallic bowl with the spring onions, olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice and toss together. Season with pepper, then cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours.

Stir in the peppers and olives. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary, remembering that the cod and olives might be salty. Arrange the tomato slices on a large serving platter or individual serving plates anc spoon the salad on top. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve.
