The other day, I was supposed to make just a regular salad.  Not necessarily boring (it was going to be full of spinach and peppers and tomatoes), but just a regular salad.  Upon finding that most of our spinach was kaput, we had to get creative.  With my husband calling out suggestions from the living room, we came up with a pepper and feta salad that did not disappoint.  Also, peppers from Costco are awesome.  Buy them.  They’re cheaper (6 per pack) and fresher than getting them fresh from a grocery store.  Seriously.


  • Red, orange, and yellow peppers (we had already eaten the green ones), chopped into small bits
  • Grape tomatoes, chopped into small bits
  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Handful of craisins
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Cracked pepper
  • Crushed red pepper (optional)

*You’ll notice there are no quantities for any of these ingredients.  That is the way it should be.  This is a true tossed salad.  I tossed everything together.  It’ll work out, I promise!


  1. Combine the peppers, tomatoes, craisins, and feta cheese in the desired size bowl for your foodening.
  2. Add some olive oil and balsamic vinegar and stir until coated.  Start with small amounts and add more to taste.
  3. Add cracked pepper to taste (I like lots, so I used a lot).
  4. Actually the crushed red pepper was an accident, but a happy one.  I just added one or two shakes of this and it added a very nice amount of heat.  A couple more couldn’t hurt!
  5. Stir until combined

+ 5 random creativity

      Thanks! He’s actually the better cook – I usually dabble more with baking (although I’m trying my hand at cooking more and more and he is definitely my inspiration!). When I do try to document his cooking, I’m usually just in the way, so most of his deliciousness doesn’t get into the blog. I’ll just have to be more sneaky!! (I also just realized that I forgot to put a crutial ingredient in the list: craisins!! Update, imminent!)

        Bhahaha :) I had a thought earlier – wondering what the darker pieces were and then got distracted by the feta – lol :) Good catch! :D
