Feta & Mint Salad with Crispy Bacon & Paprika Potatoes
WOW! This salad was so tasty and a little bit naughty… TO get approval from the hubs is prise indeed. Especially when he asked what was for dinner and I said ‘salad’ the look of pure disappointment on his face was a picture. So I thought, ‘how can I make this more appealing to a hungry husband?’ The answer – add crispy bacon and feta to it (see alternatives below). I must admin that even I was very impressed with the flavours and textures of this simple salad. I don’t personally eat dairy very often and only have cheese once in a blue moon as it affects my IBS if I overdo it but this was worth it and no pain or constipation today so I have got away with it this time! If you are Dairy Free you can swap over the feta for a vegan cheese alternative or leave it out. If you are vegetarian you could swap out the crispy bacon for crispy onion, or leave it out.
