Feta and Pimento Salad

Pimentos are small, sweet, red cherry peppers. Their succulent and aromatic qualities are the perfect counterbalance to the salty edge of the feta. This is a beautifully balanced dish that will remind you of long, hot days.

FETA AND PIMENTO SALAD

 

  • Measure 100g of giant cous cous into a pan of boiling chicken stock (or water if preferred)

  • Simmer for 6-8 mins until tender, drain and leave to cool

  • Meanwhile mix 4 good handfuls of watercress into a bowl with 1 small finely sliced red onion, approx. 175g of cubed feta cheese and a jar of drained pimento

  • Add in the cooled cous cous

  • Toss the salad together well with a couple of good slugs of A Little Bit Red Onion and Parsley Dressing

  • Finally scatter a handful of toasted pine nuts, chopped parsley and basil on the top for a fabulous finishing touch
