Feta & Chick Pea Mediterranean Style Salad
I tasted a sampler salad at Whole Foods the other day. It was just so delicious!
Unfortunately, as I had already made a dinner plan for that night so I didn't buy it, but I just couldn't forget its beautiful taste. Anyway, rather than going back to Whole Foods to buy it I made something very similar at home, remembering the taste of the original salad.
I think my replica salad is as delicious as the Whole Foods one, or maybe even better!
Ingredients for 3 - 4 people
1 can Chick Peas washed thoroughly in running water, then drained
1 large shallot chopped finely
1 clove garlic chopped finely
4oz crumbled feta cheese
about 10 cherry tomatoes cut in half
1 tablespoon parsley chopped finely
1 teaspoon fresh oregano chopped finely
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice (about half a lemon)
1/2 - 1 teaspoon sugar to taste
salt and black pepper to taste
Place all the ingredients of salad into a large mixing bowl and mix. Simple!
To make the dressing, whisk (or shake, if you put it in a bottle) the oil, vinegar, lemon juice and sugar together. Season to taste with the salt and black pepper.
Add the dressing to the bowl and mix well.
