This Turkish salad brings together my favorite elements from a salad I love at my local Turkish restaurant– feta, lemon and fresh dill. When this came together it actually reminded me a lot of an authentic greek salad minus the oregano, olives and onions.
Regardless, when you take the time to choose a nice tomato, some salty and soft goat feta, and a nice cucumber, this salad will taste like summer.
Turkish Inspired Salad with Feta and Dill(serves 2)
Tear lettuce into bite sized pieces and put in a large salad bowl. Dice cucumber and tomatoes to a medium size and add as well. Sprinkle with the fresh dill and feta cheese. Toss gently.
Juice lemon into a small bowl and whisk together with a big pinch of salt and pepper and mustard. Slowly add oil while whisking. Taste and correct for seasoning.
Toss with salad and serve
