Feta Olive Salad
It’s almost time for the grills and outside eating. Some of you in the south are probably already there aren’t you? Don’t brag!
I love hanging out and eating easy food in the summer. I look forward to it. Feta Olive Salad would be fantastic any time of year, but I have to admit that it is the perfect side for a summer BBQ.
It’s refreshing and fun and a snap to make. Can you ask for anything more?
What kind of dinner would you serve this with? I served it with a nice chicken breast and some veggies. I plan on serving it with steak as soon as I get my husband to fire up the grill (I’m drooling writing this), in fact, it would even be fantastic on top of the steak or chicken (or fish or whatever!). It’s a pretty versatile side to serve.
Want one more great reason to love Feta Olive Salad? As if you need more, but I have more! If you have leftovers? They just keep getting better.
The spices keep setting in to give it an even bigger flavor. You’re going to LOVE it the second day. I made this and let it sit in the fridge for about 12 hours before I had the first bite.
Did I eat some more on day 2? YES! It just kept getting better. I love dishes like that because I am a leftover queen.
I’m a huge fan of any sort of Mediterranean flavors and this salad screams Mediterranean to me. Feta Olive Salad?
I mean can’t you see yourself eating it in Tuscany? or Greece? Transform any dinner into an international meal with this side dish. Believe me, you won’t regret it.
There’s something about these flavors that just perk up a dinner. Feta and Olives just go so great together and the fresh herbs? Get out of here! It’s so delish.
