Feta, Tomato & Spinach on Turkish
Hello! Yes, I know it has been ages since I have put any recipes or photos on Nattycook but I have been extremely busy with working, studying and now managing the canteen at my children’s school!
I will ease back into it with a simple lunch recipe. Well actually it is really nice for dinner if you add some roasted pumpkin or sweet potato. A lovely lady that I work with is really into vegetarian and organic foods so when we work together we have Fine Food Tuesday! This is one of the favourite meals we make the most. You can also add avocado, capsicum, snow pea sprouts, whatever you like. Sometimes we put homemade pesto on the bread.
What You Need:
- Turkish Bread
- Olive oil
- Balsamic vinegar
- Baby english spinach leaves
- Onion finely sliced
- Cherry tomatoes
- Fetta cheese
What You Need To Do:
There are a few ways to make this really tasty. You can simply toast the bread in the toaster or under the grill but if you really want to ramp up the flavour brush the bread with some oil and grill it on a hotplate, the bbq is perfect!
Once the bread is toasted, put it on the plate you are going to serve it on because you don’t want to be moving it around too much! Drizzle some of the oil over the bread to moisten. Layer the spinach, cucumber, tomato, onion and fetta over the bread and pour a little more oil over the salad. Next tip a little of the balsamic over the top. You need to moisten the salad enough so some of the oil and vinegar mix and soak into the bread a little ( this is divine!). Season with a little salt and pepper and dig in!
It’s a really easy and quick meal to make and really flexible with the ingredients. I usually try to use red onion but I didn’t have any today so I had to use brown. You can even reduce the balsamic over a low heat and add some brown sugar to sweeten it up if you like. This makes a really tasty sticky dressing that is perfect with the fetta! Enjoy and I will try to take some more photos soon!!
