Greek Salad

bo trying to get some greek salad 

This recipe has been sitting in drafts folder since the summer...  Oops I haven't put anything up on my blog for ages this seems to be a reoccurring topic on my blog...must up posts more often.  Ok now for my excuses i have been far to lazy to take any photos and for awhile a lot of food was making me feel pretty sick...

So I decided to try an elimination diet to see what was making me feel sick, i cut out wheat/gluten first and I seem to feel a lot better now! I am sure I am also allergic to diary as well but I refuse to admit it, i can't give up both gluten and cheese it would make me crazy.

1 english cucumber
1 orange capsicum (orange bell pepper)
1/2 red onion
2-3 large tomatoes (i used a variety of red and yellow cherry tomatoes and regular tomatoes)
1/2 cup kalamata olives
1/2 feta cheese
3 Tablespoons olive oil
3 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
fresh thyme
freshly ground salt & pepper
juice of 1 lime

1. Slice cucumber, capsicum, tomatoes into bite sized pieces.
2. Finely slice onions.
3. In large salad bowl combine vegetables, add kalamata olives.
4. Cut feta into cubes or crumble feta on top of vegetables.
5. In a jar combine, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lime, fresh thyme and freshly ground salt and pepper. Put lid on jar and shake vigorously, and then pour over salad.
