Absolutely great tasting salad! I did cut the recipe in half for just the 2 of us, but other than that . . . Enjoyed the wonderfully refreshing flavor combo! Many thanks! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]
This has a delicious dressing. I used baby romaine leaves, no bell pepper out of preference, we didn't so much like the chickpeas in this as they were not easy to pick up with our forks, I had to omit the pepperoncini peppers since I don't know what they are and we are not for peppers anyway both spice wise and not. I didn't add the kalamata olives either as I just ran out. I used baby cucumbers, goats feta cheese which is Greek, freshly squeezed lemon juice, an unrefined extra virgin olive oil which is much healthier and tastier than refined, sea salt & freshly ground black pepper plus all the rest of the ingredients listed. Made for ZWT6 for Greece/Cyprus region, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.
This really was quick and easy! I literally threw it together in less than 10 minutes, then ran off to work! Great tasting salad and great dressing. Made for ZWT 6.
