Cucumber, Radish, Chick Pea, and Parsley Salad with Creamy Feta & White Wine Vinegar Dressing

Yield: 4 servings | Prep Time: 15 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS

* good source of fiber

  • 2 medium cucumbers *
  • Bunch of radishes (~12-15 or so), including greens *
  • 1 cup chick peas
  • ½ cup dandelion greens, chopped (optional) *
  • ½ cup + ¼ cup crumbled Feta cheese
  • 1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup fresh parsley leaves – stems removed
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. buttermilk or half & half
  • Celtic sea salt and pepper to taste

 

PREP

1. Cut ends off cucumbers, cut in half lengthwise, then cut into half-moon slices about ¼ inch thick. Wash radishes and trim ends, and set aside greens. Cut in half lengthwise and cut into half-moon slices just slightly thinner than cucumbers.  Stem radish greens and roughly chop.  Place cucumbers, radishes, radish greens, dandelion greens (if using) and parsley into a large bowl.

2. Place ½ cup crumbled feta into a bowl. Add white wine vinegar and mash slightly with a fork – leave it a little chunky. Stir in olive oil and buttermilk/half & half.

3. Stir the dressing into the salad. Season to taste with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Serve with the extra ¼ cup crumbled feta sprinkled over the salad.
