Recipe: Greek Salad

Hey guys. So "Widcombe Rising" is Bath's biggest street festival, it is a big mish mash of art, drama, music, food, drink and festivities- and my boyfriend Nick and Natural Theatre Company director Ralph Oswick organise it every other year . An estimated 8000 people visit Widcombe Rising on the day, and it is always fantastic and fun filled. This year,since it was all "Olympiad" themed, i decided to have my own stall selling Greek salads! I did really well actually, and reckon i would have sold out if it hadnt have rained a bit on the day. This is the recipe that i used to fill my greek salad pots, it's a main course sized portion for 1, that can of course easily be multiplied to feed a family, or to make a fab side dish. In the picture i've just used red peppers (because i ran out of green, lol) but it's always good for appearance sake to use different coloured peppers. Also, this dish is so healthy- each portion makes up 3 of your five a day!!

Greek Salad (serves 1 as a main course)

100g tomatoes, sliced into wedges (or halved cherry tomatoes)
5 black olives
20g thinly sliced red onion
¼ (50g) peeled and sliced cucumber
30g (1/4) red pepper
30g (1/4) green pepper
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
50g feta (diced into cubes)
Pinch dried oregano

1. Combine all the ingredients except the feta and oregano together in a mixing bowl. Plate up the Greek salad, top with the feta, and sprinkle the dried herbs over the top. Serve!
