  • Easy lamb koftas (serves 4 )
  • 1 punnet of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 lebanese cucumber, cubed
  • 1 red onion, sliced into rings
  • 100g of feta cheese, cubed
  • 100g of pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 tsp of dried oregano
  • 3 tbsp olive oil


In a glass bowl place tomatoes and cucumber. Season with salt and pepper.

Add onions, olives, feta and oregano. Turn with a large spoon.

Drizzle olive oil and mix together to coat. Leave to stand for 15 mins and mix to cover in dressing. Serve at room temperature.


  • Some cooks like to add a little lemon juice to the dressing but I prefer it without.
  • This is a great summer salad and I eat it during winter when I am sick of casseroles.
  • It makes a great quick meal if you buy some ready-made lamb skewers and throw them on the grill.
