Went to a Greek restaurant yesterday and had spanikopita (spinach and feta pie) it wasn't very nice but the salad was. I love it so much I was craving it today. I don't however like the olives or cucumber, so I've made a tasty Greek salad with avocados.
My Greek salad with a twist
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 4 servings
Ingredients For the salad Soft marinated feta cheese about 320 g
1 packet of washed rocket
1 avocado diced
1 red onion thinly sliced
For the dressing 2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic
1 teaspoon of dried or fresh oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
Salad dressing ready to go
Method The salad I had yesterday was rocket and thinly sliced iceberg lettuce but I prefer just the rocket as the iceberg lettuce at the bottom had gone soft from the dressing.
Wash rocket and place in a bowl
Thinly slice red onion
Cut tomatoes into wedges
Dice avocado and drain the cheese and break up into small pieces
Prepare the dressing by mixing together all dressing ingredients.
To serve the salad there are 2 ways
First is to add all ingredients to the rocket and mix through with the dressing to combine all flavours
Or for nice presentation layer salad start with a bowl of rocket and dress with about a teaspoon of dressing, place some tomatoes on top then some onion, then avocado and then finally break up cheese on top.
