Healthy Greek Salad With Feta Cheese

OK so there’s no need for a BBQ but this healthy Greek salad is a great accompaniment to any barbecue cookout because it’s easy to prepare and the feta cheese makes it really tasty. It’s that great Mediterranean philosophy of fresh ingredients, basic flavors, a little olive oil and you can’t go wrong.

Greek Salad with Feta cheese

Feta cheese is made for either sheep or goats’ milk and is stored in brine so it’s a novel way to add salt and flavor to a salad. It’s also served in good bite sized chunks – something to get your teeth into.

I've also used red onion because we're going to be eating it raw and it's not as strong as white onion. The lemon juice will tone down the onion anyway but if you aren't a raw onion fan then leave it out.

This recipe creates one large salad, I like also to serve as individual prepared salads for better presentation and to ensure everyone gets some!

And if you’re ever in Greece, ask for Salata Therini

Serves:- 4 people

Having cut up all the fruit and vegetables and throw them into a large salad bowl.

Mix up the vinegar, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper and drizzle over the top of the salad and toss.

If you want to serve as individual Greek salads now is the time to divide out into separate bowls.

Finally dress with the olives, cubes of feta and a sprinkling of oregano and that’s all there is to it.
