An easy Mediterranean Salad made with peppers, cabbage, cherry tomatoes, and Feta cheese. Perfect as a main entree or side dish.
Did you have a great weekend? We had fun times celebrating a birthday and going to a football game with friends. The evenings are still long and beautiful and I can definitely feel a cooler season coming in.
Over the weekend, I made one of my easiest recipes, this tasty Mediterranean Greek Salad. This simple salad recipe is perfect for warm nights, football parties and is even better the next day as a take along lunch (which I do often). Over the years, I adapted it from one of my old Betty Crocker recipe books. It is meatless, but you can add chicken or steak to make it heartier.
All the ingredients are fresh from your farmers market or grocery store.
The ingredients come together to make a beautiful and tasty, hearty salad.
Sometimes I use bell peppers and other times I use the sweet mini peppers. They make the salad so flavorful and colorful!
