Spicy Tomato, Mint, and Olive Salad

This is the quickest salad ever. I know, I know. I say that about a lot of stuff. "The quickest cake! The quickest cookie!" Well this is the quickest salad. Relatively speaking. The quickest salad I've ever made. But I 
don't make many salads so I'm maybe just talking through my head…
It's a Turkish dish called domates salatasi and is wonderfully flavoured with mint and chili. We had it for Iftar 
today and it was very refreshing. This would work amazingly with warm bread and some nice goat's cheese.

4 medium tomatoes, sliced
1 onion, sliced
2 red chillies, finely chopped
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Juice of one lemon
A handful of mint leaves
A handful of whole black olives

Place the tomatoes, onion, and chilli in a salad bowl. Mix together the lemon juice and olive oil. Drizzle over salad. Top with mint leaves. Season. Garnish with olives.
