Last night, JS and I both felt like having something light. So again we had salad for dinner. One thing great about salads is that they are not so time-consuming and yet very filling. Both of us are really fond of mediterranean food, so I thought that I should try out a Greek salad this time. Something I like about Greek Salads is that it has some tinge of sour taste to it.
While I went last week to Citywalk (my favourite hangout), I picked up some feta cheese from my favourite cheese store, Passion Cheese. Being a cheese lover myself, I see their cheese is fresh and tasty.
Nowadays all sorts of dressings are available in the market but I usually prefer to make at home. As everyone in my family likes to eat fresh. Trust me, dressings are not at all time-consuming. Also, Ingrediets of this salad are easy to find at home.
1 1/2 cups shredded red cabbage (I used green one!)
1 cup lettuce
100 gm Feta cheese
8-10 green/black olive cut into half
4 tbsp Hung curd
4 tbsp cream
1 tbsp mustard sauce
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
1 slice bread (cut into cubes)
Oil for frying
1/4 tsp oregano or mixed herb
In a bowl, mix cabbage, and tomatoes.
Tear in some lettuce!
Some olives pitted. Chill the veggies in the fridge.
Now prepare the dressing. Mix all the ingredients.
Bring back the salad and pour the dressing.
Put the feta cheese and chill in the fridge. Now prepare for garnish.
You can use a stale bread.
Heat the oil.
Fry the bread cubes.
When they change color remove from the skillet (mine are very brown because I used a brown bread).
Immediately add mixed herb and a pinch of salt.
To serve salad, top up the salad with fried croutons.
Bell peppers taste really nice in a salad. I missed on that. If you want you can add.
Also, feta cheese was cubed in this salad. You can actually crumble it.
I usually avoid the fried bits in the salad but this is just to give authenticity to the salad. It sometimes is comforting to replicate the dish that you just ate at a restaurant.
