Recipe Notes

Because they pack so many great nutrients with great quality protein and carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals legumes make a fantastic base for salads. Add great quality veggies, a bit of cheese and olive oil and you have a perfect combination that can almost make a complete meal.

In this recipe the rich, salty and umami feta combines with the olive oil to create a rich and savory dressing. This is about as great a side dish as you can get. It goes fantastic with grilled fish or chicken. You can serve it cold and topped with a grilled piece of salmon (chilled or hot), for example. It is even good gently warmed in the microwave (about 60 seconds or so) alongside sauteed shrimp or chicken thighs.

"He who spends time regretting the past loses the present and risks the future."
