This is a simple and fresh summer salad, using a few of my favorite ingredients. It's super easy to put together and very flavorful. What makes this salad so delicious is the use of the smoked paprika. Smoked paprika is used a lot in Spain and it really is a whole different flavor profile than regular paprika. It has a smoky, charcoal like aroma. It adds an almost grilled flavor to the food its added to. Please go on a treasure hunt and search for smoked paprika in your city and I promise you it will be well worth the effort.
