Two kinds of peppers, fresh olives and lots of feta cheese will make this colorful Greek toss up, sent in by Glenda Parsonage of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, a favorite. For a change of pace, try it with capers and lemon slices on top.
Whether it's health or taste you're after, it doesn't get any better than this --bulgur, beans, tomatoes pine nuts and olive oil team up in this vegetarian main dish salad. CW's food editor, Wendy Stenman, created this just for The Healthy Kitchen.
Ruth Lee of Troy, Ontario serves this great combination as an easy and colorful salad. “I make this no-fuss dish at least once a month,” she writes. “It's a great way to use up fresh summer tomatoes and adds zip to winter tomatoes, too.”
“I invented this recipe while watching a movie set on the Greek islands. I like the combination of warm grilled steak and sauteed mushrooms with cold salad ingredients.” —Chris Wells, Lake Villa, Illinois
