Spicy Salad with Feta Cheese and Olives

On with 0 Comment
Generally powdered spices are omitted while making a typical salad. The following salad includes them making it one of the spiciest salads I've ever made. Feta or cottage cheese can be used for this salad. You must refrigerate this salad for half an hour before serving. I often use olives for my salad and I've chosen black olives for this one. If possible, make thin slices of all the veggies used for this salad. This will give it the right texture and flavor. You can also use pickled olives for this salad adding a bit tangy flavor. One can also pour generous amount of extra virgin olive on top right before serving. Instead of adding cubes of the feta cheese, you can add them in the mashed form to absorb the spices.
