Why not try?

My family and I all got involved in making this delicious salad, with my boy eagerly describing how the vegetables for it arrived in a massive box from a chap called Gary!

He washed the glossy ripe tomatoes and after a few impatient nibbles of the cucumber, he did a good job with that too. I have to admit, my husband did a darn good job with executing much of this salad including marinating the feta in the toasted spices. It’s a rarity, so I am cherishing this memory.

Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

1
Toast the fennel and cumin seeds for a minute or so on a dry pan until the aromas are released. Combine the seeds with the feta and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a bowl, making sure the feta is coated in the spiced oil. Place in the fridge for a couple of hours to marinate
2
Remove the excess water from the aubergine by salting the cubes lightly and resting them on kitchen paper to drain, then place in a bowl and cook in the microwave for 3 minutes
3
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6
4
Place the sweet potatoes and aubergine on a baking tray and drizzle with a little of the olive oil. Roast in the oven for 35 minutes then allow to cool whilst you prepare the salad
5
Combine the olives, red onion, tomatoes, cucumber, oregano, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil in a bowl, then mix in the marinated feta. Add the sweet potato and aubergine and toss it all together before serving with dips and bread
