This salad is loosely based on a greek salad, by that I mean the key ingredients are feta, tomatoes and olives, however I have (as always) made quite a few adjustments. I also finely chopped everything so that with forkful you get all the flavours. Dicing the ingredients for the salad also mean that the salad becomes quite a versatile side/accompaniment for other meals. You can pop it in a wrap with chicken, top a burger with it, use it as a sandwich filling... etc.
When making this you can vary the amounts of the ingredients depending on what you like. Also red onion goes nicely in it (or so I've heard) but I have left it out.
What you need to make a small bowlful:
- 1 Tomato, diced;
- 1/2 Red Pepper, diced;
- 1 handful of diced Feta;
- 1 large handful of Salad Leaves (I used Baby Spinach), finely sliced;
- 10 pitted Kalamata Olives, Chopped;
- 1 tsp Olive Oil;
- 1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar;
- A pinch of Oregano; and
- A pinch of salt.
All you need to do once you have diced and sliced everything is to throw it in a bowl and mix it all together. Then grab some fresh bread and a glass of white wine and enjoy :) ... of what ever.
