Rich flavors are best balanced with a touch of freshness, as in this tangy Mediterranean salad. Be sure to serve this dish immediately so that each flavor stands out more distinctly.
In a small bowl, make the dressing: Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. In a large bowl, combine the flat and curly-leaf parsley and the mint. Drizzle with dressing, and toss to combine. Garnish with cheese and olives. Serve immediately.
