This is a really morish salad, rich in flavour. It is great served with just about anything! And an all time favourite of many to whom I have served it too. Also a good salad to prepare in advance - infact it's better if it is - (the 'older' it gets, the better it gets!!!!)
- 1⁄2 head red cabbage, finely shredded
- 1 red capsicum, sliced
- 1⁄2 green capsicum, sliced
- 200 g sliced black olives
- 1 red onion, thinly sliced
- spring onion, thinly sliced
- 200 g feta cheese, crumbled (or more according to taste)
- cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
- 1⁄2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup light olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, to taste
- 1 garlic clove, crushed (optional)
- 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- Combine all salad ingredients together- one or two at a time- EXCEPT the Cherry Tomatoes and toss WELL.
- Combine all DRESSING ingredients together in jar or bottle and shake well, and taste.
- Drizzle dressing a little at a time over salad, and toss well to coat the salad evenly.
- Add the halved Cherry Tomatos last.
I love salads you can prepare in advance. I skipped the onions since I'm not a fan, and was out of olives so l left them out as well but will definitely add them in next time because I know they will go great with the feta. Thank you.
I did not have a red or a green bell pepper, but I did have 1 yellow bell pepper. I also only had kalamata olives, so I used them in place of black olives. I just realized I forgot to include (the optional) clove of crushed garlic, however, this was a really nice salad! I can't wait to let the flavors marinate a bit and try it again. This was a great way to use the red cabbage and cherry tomatoes we have overflowing from our garden this summer. I actually only made half the recipe for the dressing, & I added some oregano & ground black pepper to the dressing, just because I like that combination (the dressing is almost identical to one I make homemade all the time). I probably used only half of the amount of Feta called for, but for me, it was plenty! Thanks for sharing this healthy recipe.
I have made this for years, it is in my old red Betty Crocker cookbook, called Confetti Slaw! A cousin just asked me for the recipe, and rather than type it all out, I looked for it online! I agree, it is better with age, and EVERYONE loves it - it is pretty too!
