Chick Pea and Feta Cheese Salad

Submitted by: TWO_SPARROWS

Introduction

You can buy a tin of chick peas at the grocer, and you can substitute any kind of feta cheese for this very traditionally prepared Greek-style salad. Lots of flavour, lots of colour, not a lot of "bad" going on here.

Ingredients

    Cucumber (with peel), 0.50 cucumber (8-1/4")
    Red Onions, raw, 0.5 small
    Red Ripe Tomatoes, 2 large whole (3" dia)
    Chickpeas (garbanzo beans), 539 g
    Extra Light Olive Oil, 3 tbsp
    Sheep's Milk Feta Cheese, 175 gram(s)
    Fresh Mint, 30 gram(s)

    Dried oregano and about a teaspoonful of lemon juice.

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, oregano and the lemon juice, set aside.

Chop the cucumber, tomatoes, and mint. The vegetables should be chunky while the mint needs to be rather fine to be able to blend through the salad. Add these to the bowl.

Chop the onion fairly finely and add it with the cucumber mixture.

Crumble the feta cheese into the bowl. Wash and drain the chick peas then add them, too.

Stir everything together, spoon into serving dishes or storage containers and enjoy.

Not freezable, but will keep for about a week (5 days) in the fridge.

Enjoy.
