Balsamic Feta Salad with Onions


½ lettuce (teared) or some salad leaves
½ English cucumber (cut in 4 lenghtwise, then sliced)
½ sweet pointed pepper or bell pepper (diced)
½-¼ red onion (finely chopped)
½ bar of feta or salad cheese – 100g (cubed)
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
freshly cracked black pepper – to taste
sea salt – to taste
onion or garlic granules – to taste
small handful of basil leaves (chopped) – optional


Combine all ingredients in salad bowl, mix well and serve immediately or leave it in the fridge to cool down a little bit.

Serve 4 people as a side dish or snack with some crunchy bread such as Ryvita on a side.

  • This salad is very versatile, you can practically use any leftover greens you have in the fridge, as long as you have piece of feta cheese and some onions.

Your thoughts…

  1. Feta and balsamic vinegar just seem to go so well together Margot. Delish!

  2. Yum yum – salty feta and tangy balsamic – sounds like a winner to me!

  3. You got me here Margot… love the combination of ingredients… Feta indeed is a lovely cheese, and imagine me leaving in Greece and particular on an island what KIND of good quality feta cheese I can find… this is of course for all the native things…
    p.s. I just bought 2 lbs of it… wished I could send you some, just to try and see the difference from the ones found in outside Greece stores…
