Greek Artichoke Salad

Jerry Stratton, October 17, 2005

Feta cheese and lemon combine with black olives and artichokes for a very interesting salad.

Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 can black olives, pitted
  • 1 can artichoke hearts
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 tblsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled

Steps

  1. Chop red bell pepper into small pieces
  2. Chop artichoke hearts into chunks
  3. Slice black olives
  4. Mix everything together

Feta cheese and lemon is a great start for any salad, but combining tender artichokes with black olives and red bell makes this Mediterranean-style salad stand out.

The lemon will mellow the sharpness of the onion, and develop the other flavors, if you let it sit for about half an hour before serving.

Like most good salads, this needs a good bread to accompany it.
