• Easy Mediterranean Salad

    September 20, 2009

    I’ve wanted to recreate this Mediterranean Salad all week– ever since I first tasted it at the Market Lunch & Walking Tour event. It’s that delicious! It’s super easy to make, too! Love that! :-D

    The original recipe makes 10 servings, and since it’s just Mal and me, I halved the recipe.

    Here’s a quick step-by-step…

    1. Chop potatoes into bite-size pieces. Lightly coat with olive oil and salt. Roast for about 15-20 minutes on 450*F until golden brown.

    2. While potatoes are roasting, chop red pepper and saute in olive oil.

    3. Combine the rest of ingredients in a large mixing bowl. When potatoes and peppers are cooked, add them to the bowl too and mix well.

    4. Serve cold and enjoy!

    This looks really good! I have a new recent obsession with black olives haha. However, what is the dressing that you put on the veggies — maybe I missed something?

    That does look realy good! Since this would be a perfect meal for me I want to try it but my B.F. usually wants something a bit more substantial. Does Mal eat something on the side with this to beef it up or is he satisfied with lighter dinners?
