Although recipes differ, it is usually made from a mixture of fresh tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, onions, celery, cucumber, bread crumbs, garlic, olive oil, vinegar and sometimes lemon juice. This can be served as a meal in itself, espeically when extra fresh vegetables such as sliced celery, green onion, cucumber and green pepper are added. Croutons and diced eggs are the most frequent garnishes.
