Easy Greek Salad

The flavors of Mediterranean food have always been some of my favorites – and the dishes are usually colorful and appealing! Maybe it’s my Bulgarian roots but I love the combination of cucumbers, red peppers, tomatoes, and olives. This recipe is no exception. It includes bright flavors like lemon and oregano accenting sweet peppers and salty olives. It’s very versatile, and full of protein, vitamins, and minerals. It can easily stand alone, or you could add additional protein such as salmon, chicken, or steak for a heartier dish.

You probably realize by now that I’m a big fan of one-dish “salads” that are full of clean ingredients and easy to prepare. The only skills needed in this one are chopping and whisking 🙂 I try to use organic ingredients whenever possible, to reduce exposure to toxins such as pesticides.

While the chickpeas are draining, chop the peppers, tomatoes, and olives. Then, whisk together the remaining dressing ingredients and top with feta. Mix it together and you’re done!
