What’s For Lunch Wednesdays
Welcome, beautiful people!
I promise not to break into an unnecessarily long soliloquy about things unrelated to this recipe, but if you’ll indulge me for a moment there is a brief intro. 😉
To those who know me super well, I am notorious for making food-related faux pas on a semi-regular basis. My mom is the best cook in the universe, so naturally I should be decent, right? Nah. I was far too stubborn as a child to pay attention in the kitchen (sorry, Momma). However, in recent years I’ve started getting better in the culinary field, or at least I have tried a lot harder. I’m also getting married soon which is a good motivator to get better at cooking/baking — primarily because my man makes really good meals for me, and I want to be able to return the sweet gesture. ❤ Without further ado… let’s get started! I love this because it’s aesthetically pleasing, delicious, easy, and super cheap!!!
- Cut the cucumber in half, then cut it in half again longways, and chop that bad boy up!
- Grab about 14 of your tomatoes and slice them in half.
- This is oddly specific, but use only about 1/6 of your red onion and chop that as well.
- Chop 1/2 of the bell pepper. (Look how pretty those colors are!!)
- I should let you know that I’m a cheese-oholic, so for this I throw in a hand full of feta.
- 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil.
- 2 tablespoons vinegar (I used white vinegar but you can use a different kind if you prefer, e.g., red wine vinegar).
- A few shakes of oregano! (Great health benefits, by the way.)
- Mix it all up!
- Now I recommend covering it up and popping it in the fridge for about 5-10 minutes to give in some extra bounce.
- Take it out of the fridge, sprinkle a little extra feta (I was not kidding — I love cheese), mix it one more time, and ENJOY!!!
Serving size: Roughly 2 servings
(NOTE: If you don’t like/can’t eat cheese, you could substitute it for black olives to keep a good variety of foods in there!)
