Greek salad


  1. Cucumber
  2. Tomatoes
  3. Bell pepper
  4. Kalamata olives
  5. Red onion


  1. Olive oil
  2. Balsamic vinegar
  3. Lemon juice
  4. Feta cheese
  5. Dill (optional)
  6. Mint (optional)


To make the salad a bit more filling—a whole meal—add chickpeas, couscous, or both.

  1. Roasted chickpeas
  2. Pearl couscous

I like to cook the couscous in a vegetable broth.


  1. Chop ingredients into roughly even pieces.
  2. Mix the chopped pieces together.
  3. Dress with olive oil, balsamic, lemon juice, feta, and herbs to taste.
