Elle's Kitchen: Shepherd's Salad

My Take on a Turkish Classic

I had this salad on my recent trip to
Istanbul and I have to admit it was just
okay.  For me, it was a bit bland, so I have
jazzed it up a bit and now we love to include
this in our weekly menus.


Cucumber - cut into quarters and sliced
Tomatoes, diced
Red onion, sliced thin
Feta cheese. about a 2" cube, crumbled

Mix together and add a viniagrette, I make
mine with some rice vinegar, salt & pepper
and a good olive oil, mix together and shake,
then I add a few drops of an excellent balsamic
vinegar and mix.

About the tomatoes ~ I have been using the
Compari toms, they have a great flavor, they
remind me of the tomatoes I had in Greece
which were the best toms I have ever eaten.
And that is a bold statement coming from
a Jersey Girl...
