When I was in high school my German language teacher had a moto, KISS-Keep it Simple Stupid. Now looking back I do have to wonder, was this her subtle way of telling us really what she thinks of us or was she actually trying to teach us a valuable life lesson? I will just leave it at the life lesson.

Simplicity does not have to mean lack of flavour or substance. In this case simplicity is about getting the best flavour in almost the least amount of time that one could get to prepare this delicious salad. Other than a little grilling and chopping the majority of time is spent assembling and eating.
