MMMM! It's still summer (barely) and we still have lots of fresh local produce available here on the west coast.
Why not use some of those juicy tomatoes and crisp cucumbers for some super easy "Greek" style salad?
2-3 large tomatoes
1 large cucumber
Red, green, yellow, orange peppers (1 of each)
1 large red onion
1 cup kalamata olives (pitted or with pits, your choice!)
1 cup feta cheese (or more, if you like ;) )
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 tsp dijon mustard
Salt, pepper to taste
Chop all the veggies into 1/4 inch cubes (as per picture below).
Whisk dressing together in bowl, set aside. If you make this in advance (up to 24 hours) it brings the flavours out nicely.
Toss the veggies in the dressing, add olives, and top with feta cheese.
