|Baked Feta & Walnut Salad
A rustic Greek-style salad with baked feta cheese, walnuts, mixed salad leaves, thinly sliced fresh radish and zucchini, tossed with a tangy lemon garlic dressing.
2 teaspoons plus 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 oz (180g) feta cheese—cut into small cubes
2/3 cup raw walnuts
1 clove garlic—crushed
3 tablespoons lemon juice
Pinch of sea salt
6 cups mixed salad leaves of your choice—washed and shaken dry
2 radishes—very thinly sliced
1 zucchini—very thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Mix 2 teaspoons of olive oil with the dried oregano and black pepper in a bowl and toss through the cubed feta cheese to coat well. Arrange the feta cubes on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Place the walnuts on a separate baking tray and bake for the final 3 minutes of cooking, then roughly chop.
Place the remaining 4 tablespoons of olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and salt in a jar with a lid and shake to combine. Place the salad leaves, radish slices and zucchini slices in a salad bowl and toss with half the dressing to coat. Scatter over the baked feta and walnuts and drizzle with the remaining dressing to serve. -MEDITERRASIAN.COM
