Trampó is the perfect dish to enjoy for lunch on a warm day in Mallorca, while taking a break from all the sunbathing or the exhausting sightseeing. Made with tomato, green pepper and onion dressed with salt and olive oil, its lightness will allow you to avoid the dreaded afternoon slump.
All of the ingredients in this dish come from traditional Mallorcan crops and it is often served along with Spanish tortilla, fish or meat. It is also part of the "coca de trampó", a type of Mediterranean focaccia topped with this salad.
You can find lots of varieties of the basic recipe by adding capers, olives, potatoes, boiled eggs, chickpeas and even tuna or cod. But the best part is always dipping freshly baked bread in the olive oil, infused with the vegetables' flavours. Not for nothing, the name trampó comes from "trempar" or "to dress" in mallorquí.
