Turkish Chopped Salad

10 mins (prep 10)
14 ingredients
4 servings
This is my adaptation of a dish that was put on the table when I went to a Turkish restaurant. I would suggest using fresh feta from a Mediterranean/Greek grocer, packaged feta can be overly dry and salty. I also like to make an Italian variation using Ricotta Salata cheese, which is not the soft cheese used in baked ziti but a semi soft cheese made from sheep's milk.This cheese can be found in supermarkets with a good cheese section or at an Italian deli/Salumeria. I prefer not to over dress the salad simply using a little bit of red wine vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil on top. This is great with grilled meats or fish and great for those hot summer days.
