This is difficult...
1) Olive oil
2) Fresh or roasted garlic
3) Onions
4) Diced tomatoes
5) Beans, especially black beans
6) Kosher salt/fresh pepper
7) Red, Yellow & Green bell peppers (yea Aldi for making these affordable!)
8) Parsley
9) Cilantro
10) Parmesan

Help me with the balsalmic vinegar thing, people. I don't get it.
I do like red-wine vinegar a lot, but I haven't used it too much lately--more often on summer salads.
