Feta Salad or Greek Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa


This is a recipe I made up and not sure what to call it.  It is best during the hot summer days and you can swap out some of the fresh items depending on what's available at market. I guess I could also call it Greek Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa Salad since almost everything seems to be in 1 cup measurements!


INGREDIENTS

1 cup fresh cucumber, in quarter chunks
1 cup fresh tomatoes, sliced
1 cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained
1 cup roasted peppers, chopped
1 cup fresh feta cheese, cubed
1/2 cup vinaigrette dressing (or to taste)

PREPARATION
  • Make sure all items are chilled before using - this makes the salad more refreshing.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large non-metallic bowl.
  • Drizzle with dressing and serve.
Variations: use heirloom or cherry or grape tomatoes; grilled eggplant or any marinated vegetables; olives; etc.

So, although this looks delicious, I'm really in love with the canisters in the background of your photo! Where did you get them? Thanks! Jen

Hey Jen - those are Kromex canisters from the 1950s - I collect Kromex and purchase my items on Ebay http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=kromez+canisters&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313&_nkw=kromex+canisters&_sacat=0
