A take-off on the classic chilled soup from Spain, this gazpacho-inspired salad provides an excellent option for any summer soiree. Fresh garlic and parsley, extra-virgin olive oil, heirloom tomatoes, diced cucumber and green bell pepper come together with organic eggs and cheese to create a salad with much of the stellar health benefits of its liquid cousin.
Mix first four dressing ingredients; whisk in olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Layer salad ingredients, except the cheese, in a clear glass dish or straight-sided glass bowl in the order listed above, lightly sprinkling every other layer with salt and pepper. Drizzle dressing evenly over the salad and chill it, if desired, 1 to 2 hours.
Sprinkle with Parmesan or Feta and toss gently just before serving.
