I call all Greek food "Goddess food." Is it because its usually so healthy and beautiful? Or maybe its because I think that if I eat like a Greek Goddess, maybe I will start to look like one! You are what you eat, so I'm sticking with the Goddess food...with my fingers crossed.
This salad combines my favorite Greek elements; chick peas, cucumbers, mint and feta with a few local, fresh vegetables that seem to find there way onto most summer tables.; corn & tomatoes. Its kind of Jersey Greek... or better, Shore Goddess! Beautiful!
Heres what you'll need:
- 19 oz can of chick peas, rinsed
- 3 ears of corn, cooked, kernels removed
- 1 cucumber, chopped
- 8-10 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
- mint, 2 tbsp chopped, plus a few sprigs for garnish
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2-3 ozfeta cheese, cubed
For the dressing, whisk these ingredients together:
- 1 lemon, zest and juice
- 1 tsp Dijon dressing
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- salt & pepper
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients together with the dressing. Garnish with mint, extra cucumber or lemon wedge. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
