    Default Chick Pea & Feta Salad

    Chick Pea & Feta Salad


    Recipe Description
    Nice summertime salad, colorful & flavorful. Easily doubled. Taste before adding salt as feta cheese is sometimes very salty.
    Preparation Steps:Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:Ingredients:
    19 oz can Chick peas, drained
    2T or more thinly sliced red onion
    1 clove garlic, minced
    Cubed tomatoes or grape tomatoes halved (as many as you'd like)
    feta to taste (2-4oz?), large chunks

    Dressing:
    3T olive oil
    1T lemon juice
    pepper to taste
    may not need salt because of feta.
    Serves:

    Directions:
    In bowl, combine salad ingredients, Mix dressing and pour over salad. Refrigerate several hours before serving. As you stir the feta breaks off into smaller pieces and adds salt flavor to your dressing.

    Darlene, could I substitute a different kind of cheese? I've found that Cabot brand doesn't have lactose in it, but I am not sure they make the feta variety.

    TIA

    I'm not sure but it's worth a try, maybe there is a crumbly type of something that would work. You may need to add a pinch of salt too. Hope you can find a good alternative because it really makes the salad. Good luck and sorry you have to deal with this health issue, gotta be frustrating sometimes.

    Yum! I can see adding in a lil diced bell peppers and if you swap out the cheese - cheddar? Also, I'd prob sprinkle oregano over the top to make it truly Greek (or one step further, toss in penne for a pasta salad with punch!)
