If you like Mediterranean flavors, then you will love this dinner. The salsa really makes the meal with the feta cheese and olives. I serve the salsa over grilled chicken and you can also dip the baked pita bread in it.
2 T. olive oil
2 T. white wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. dry basil, crushed
1 tsp dry rosemary, crushed
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
10-15 kalamata olives, chopped
1/2 c. cucumber, peeled and chopped
1/4 c. red onion, finely chopped
2 c. roma tomatoes, chopped (remove seeds)
1/3 c. crumbled feta cheese or more if you like
Combine first 8 ingredients. Stir. Then add olives, onion and cucumber. Toss to coat and then refrigerate. Just before serving, gently stir in tomatoes and feta. Put the salsa over grilled chicken as a main dish or just with pita chips as an appetizer.
Baked Pita Bread
Preheat oven at 400. Using a fork, prick each pita several times. Rub each pita with olive oil and you can season with pepper, salt and any other spices you enjoy. Cut each pita into 8 triangles and place on a baking sheet. Bake until crisp and browned, about 7 minutes. Serve with your favorite hummus or with the Mediterranean salsa.
