Greek'ish' Summer Salad


Greekish Summer Salad

I suffered with heartburn REALLY badly during my third pregnancy (and yes she did have a lot of hair) so it was quite timely that Rennie® asked me to develop a healthy recipe for their #SummerTreats challenge.

The criteria was that it had to be colourful, healthy and evocative of summer so I decided to adapt a classic Greek Salad and make it a bit more filling.

The addition of chickpeas and canellini beans to the usual ingredients of feta, tomatoes, olives and red onion made it a lot more robust and kept my tummy happily full from lunchtime through to dinner. The dressing was a lovely combination of oregano, lemon zest and olive oil and gave the salad a real zing.

Eat for lunch and mop up the juices with some crusty bread. Heaven.
