Preheat the oven to 400℉ (200℃).

Place the bell pepper pieces and crushed garlic onto the tray.
Stir with a wooden spoon to mix evenly.
Roast for another 15 minutes, place the red onions on top, and continue to roast for another 10 minutes or so, or until potatoes become slightly golden and tender.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes without any stirring.
In a large mixing bowl, add the roasted potato, bell peppers, onions, and tomato.
Whisk together the vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil in a small bowl until well blended. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
Pour over the salad, and sprinkle the parsley over. Gently toss until evenly coated.
