Tomato, pepper, basil salad with feta, nuts and sesame

A colorful and healthy salad to brighten up the day:) No special dressing here, as a hint to taste every bit of every ingredient and its natural flavor. (That’s what I do all the time, and the reason why lots of the recipes I don’t document and publish, preferring generally very simple meals prepared with no additional flavors, even without salt).  
Yield: 2-4 servings


a bunch of lettuce
a few stems of basil
4 tomatoes
1 large bell pepper, cored and deseeded
1/4 medium head of red cabbage
1 baked/cooked beetroot
50 g feta cheese
1 tbsp pine nuts
a pinch of black sesame seeds
a squeeze of lemon
a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil


Rinse and drain the basil and lettuce. Remove the stems and chop the greens. Place into a large salad bowl or platter.
Chop the tomatoes, bell pepper, red cabbage, beetroot. Crumble the feta cheese. Spread the veggies over the greens in no particular order. Squeeze the lemon juice over. Drizzle with some olive oil. Sprinkle the pine nuts and black sesame over. Serve!:)
