READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Miss Annie in Indy

A wonderful Greek inspired salad. Makes a great lunch meal, very filling and healthy too. Found this at a vegan web site and changed to my tastes.

I tried this with trepidation to be honest but it turned out to be very nice indeed. I did omit the cucumber as I deeply dislike them. The feta and mint simply made the dish. I had left over and used it to stuff a pita for lunch the next day. Yummy!!!
