Bell Pepper salad with feta and olives


Due to the fact it has been it has been raining for 3 days and we also had a few storms with very powerful wind, there were some technical problem at the restaurant we usually eat (the one with which my company has a contract) so we need to eat at the office.
Today I was not ready, so I went to the store and bought some things for lunch, but for tomorrow I will take lunch with me.
I have been working very late, so cooking something that implies much time is not an option…so stuck to the classic salad :)

I made one tonight, put it in the fridge and it will be perfect for lunch tomorrow. It is a Mediterranean inspired salad, with feta cheese and olives. I made a big bowl so my boyfriend (and my dog) will have a healthy side dish for their lunch :)

You will need:

  • 3 bell peppers (one red, one yellow, and one green)
  • 3 green onions
  • 200 g feta cheese
  • 200 g olives (black or green, whatever you prefer – I used green since I do not eat black ones)
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley and dill

I made a sauce as well and used the following:

  • 5 tablespoons of extravirgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons mustard with horseradish
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper

For the salad you need to: Cut all the vegetables: the bell peppers in thin strips, the green onion into little rings, the olives (after you took out the seed) into little peaces (or you can leave them as they are) and put them in a salad bowl. On top of them put the feta cheese (cut in little cubs) and the chopped parsley and dill.

For the sauce you need to: mix the mustard with the slowly added olive oil. Separately mix the orange juice with the lemon juice and the honey until the honey is completely dissolved, then add them over the mustard and olive oil.

Add salt and pepper to the sauce, pour it over the salad then put the bowl in the fridge and leave it for at least 15 minutes before you serve.


Enjoy! :)
