Spicy Feta Cheese Salad

This easy spicy feta salad works as a main meal or as a side dish. I love the tangy, salty, creamy taste of feta and every time I eat this it reminds me of beautiful Greek island life.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Ingredients (serves 2-3 people)

  • Spring mix salad leaves or any salad greens would work
  • 1 /2red onion finely sliced
  • 1 small cucumber chopped
  • Half a red pepper sliced
  • 6-7 cherry tomatoes chopped in quarters
  • 4-5 radishes sliced
  • 1/2 tin of tomatoes
  • 1/2 tin of olives (Turkish black olives, Kalamata Olives or pitted Spanish Olives)
  • Feta cheese (more or less as you prefer)
  • 3-4 tbsp. olive oil for dressing
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Half a tsp. of Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. To make the dressing, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper and chili flakes. Stir well to ensure all ingredients infuse together.
  2. Place the salad leaves, onion, cucumber, tomatoes, radishes and red peppers in a large salad bowl.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad and mix well.
  4. Place the salad into separate bowls if serving for multiple guests.
  5. Arrange the olives on top of the salad and crumble the feta cheese over the salad, and it’s ready to eat!
