Feta & Mint Salad

There’s nothing I love more than a good salad with fresh hearty flavour and texture. And lately I’ve been loving the classic combination of Feta, mint and red onion; tossed with cherry tomatoes, cucumber and olives it also makes the perfect salad for afternoon lunch (even so on a rainy day)

Notes:
I added some chickpeas for texture and dressed the salad with a simple lemon and olive oil dressing to complement the flavour of the mint and feta. Also, I used green olives (because that’s what i had) however, i think black olives would be better; they have a more mellow taste which would be perfect, combined with the other ingredients, to balance the flavours.

I just love this salad because it’s simple yet refreshing on the palette (with a little crunch and lots of colour too); I can’t wait to make it again!
