The refrigerator light goes on...

Because they pack so many great nutrients with great quality protein and carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, legumes make a fantastic base for salads. Add great quality veggies, a bit of cheese and olive oil and you have a perfect combination that can almost make a complete meal.

In this recipe the rich, salty and umami feta combines with the olive oil to create a rich and savory dressing. This is about as great a side dish as you can get. It goes fantastic with grilled fish or chicken. You can serve it cold and topped with a grilled piece of salmon (chilled or hot), for example. It is even good gently warmed in the microwave (about 60 seconds or so) alongside sauteed shrimp or chicken thighs.
