Subject: RE: BS: If you don't like salads......
My other favourite salad is Greek salad, with tomatoes, olives, cucumber, capsicum and feta cheese with a lemon juice & olive oil dressing. I know the classic Greek salad does have raw red onion and doesn't have lettuce but I like it with cos lettuce and/or baby spinach leaves and/or rocket and if I have to have the raw onion I do my Mum's trick of premarinating it in a bit of nice tasting vinegar or lemon juice to get rid of the repetition problem.

I always have a tub of feta in the frig. My other fave use for it is making spanakopita or tiropita, or I use it in my vege faux-sausage rolls and the filling is based on mashed chick peas or butter or white beans with whatever vege flavours take my fancy. The most unusual experiment I did was inspired by saag paneer, but using feta for a bigger savoury taste. There are very few foods that I find irresistible but sausage rolls are close to the top of the list, so my bean or chick pea based sausage roll filling is a good substitute.
