Recipe #9: Gypsy Salad

This salad is so fresh, healthy, and flavorful.  I think that traditional recipes only have green peppers and I've added a few other things so I'm not sure how authentic this is but it's yummy.

Serves 4-6

  • 2 small red onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 each yellow, red, and green bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2-4 chillies - I like using a mix of hot red, medium orange, and mild green
  • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/3-1/2 block feta
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper
After thinly slicing the onions, spread on a plate and salt.

Let weep while you slice the peppers, about 10 minutes.  Rinse the onions, pat dry and mix with the peppers.

Finely chop the hot peppers.  I used a mix to temper the spice.  The red chili was really hot, the yellow medium and the green was mild.

Mix together all vegetables and parsley and garlic.

Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice.  Salt and pepper to taste.  You probably will not need to add a lot of salt as the feta is usually pretty salty.  Crumble the feta over salad and serve.
