Greekish salad with Felafel 04.11.2008

A delicious bottom-of-the-fridge accident. I actually had to cut mould off the felafels, but I don’t think it’s necessary to go to such lengths to achieve greatness for this recipe.


  • 2 lebanese cucumbers, chopped
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • A bunch of parsley, chopped
  • A bit of mint, chopped
  • 8-10 olives, squashed and pips removed
  • A few cubes of feta (marinated worked really well for me)
  • Maldon or Murray River salt (yes, I’m a $9-for-salt yuppie), pepper, good olive oil
  • Six or seven pre-prepared felafels, cooked until hot and a bit crunchy


Mix all the salad ingredients and dress with a good slug of olive oil, plus the salt and pepper. Crush up the felafels and mix them through the salad. Crumble the cheese over the top.
