Ok, that might be my worst title yet. Apologies Russell Brand. It does let me lead nicely into sharing a recipe for one of my favourite salads – a Greek Salad.
This pairs wonderfully with the yoghurt marinated lamb I posted last week, or with the marinate barbecued chicken I’ll be posting about in the coming days. Or it’s wonderful on it’s own, resting on a bed of salad greens, with maybe a toasted flat bread on the side.
Everyone seems to have their own version of Greek Salad. This is mine.
GREEK TOMATO, CAPSICUM, CUCUMBER AND FETA SALAD
2 punnets cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 red onion finely sliced
1 green capsicum, seeds removed, finely sliced
1/2 telegraph cucumber, cut into 2cm dice
200g feta, chopped into 2cm dice
1/4 cup mint leaves, finely chopped
Juice of a lemon
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
- Mix all ingredients together gently in a large salad bowl. Season to taste and serve.
