Vibrant Mediteranean Salad

Posted on Sep 17, 2017 in Food, Lunch/Dinner

I know sometimes how the thought of another salad can fill you with dread, but I promise, this vibrant salad is packed full of flavour and nutrients.  I’ve teamed it here with goat’s fetta but it works just as well with grilled or barbecued chicken.

Ingredients :
2 tbsp of refined coconut oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 medium zucchini, chop into 1/2 cm slices on the diagonal
1/2 red capsicum sliced
1/2 large yellow capsicum sliced
200g cherry tomatoes
1 celery stalk, sliced thinly
2 tbsp of thinly sliced fennel
1 teaspoon of capers, rinsed
1 large handful of parsley, chopped
1 small handful of basil leaves, torn
200g goat’s fetta, roughly cubed

Dressing:
3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp of lemon juice

Method:
Lightly saute the zucchini and capsicums with the garlic until softened.
Add to the other ingredients in a large bowl.
Place the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl and stir until well combined.
Pour the dressing over the salad and enjoy for a light lunch or side dish to grilled meats.
