4 small tomatoes
1 red bell pepper
3 golden pepperoncini
3 large artichoke hearts
1 cucumber, seeded
1/2 red onion
lettuce
crusty bread
vinaigrette
parmesan
1 C sadness
2 T moonbattery
1/4 C peace, love, and understanding

Hack bread into chunks about 2 cm x 2 cm. Combine with all other ingredients except parmesan, sadness, moonbattery, and peace/love/understanding; toss well. Top individual portions with previously excluded ingredients.

It is said by the ancients that if you eat this salad on a muggy evening in late summer, you will dream of Noam Chomsky that night.

Serves 2-4 hungry Communists.

I must protest. Parmesan and sadness cannot coexist.

looks yummy, except I think Moonbattery must taste pretty bitter.

With all due respect, it's wingnuttery that tastes bitter. Moonbattery tastes like chicken.

The parmesan was indeed pretty happy. So was the gorgonzola we put on the steaks, but Helen being a vegetarian and all, I didn't photograph those.
