Leftovers Salad

This is a delicious 'Summer salad' which can be rustled up from things you have in the fridge that need using up.. this particular version is a Greek-style salad with feta cheese, peppers, beans, olives and herbs. Finish it off with a lemony, garlicky dressing and a generous chunk of hot bread. This is the kind of thing you want after a total blowout meal and toooo much alcohol. I like the idea of really hearty, healthy stuff when I'm looking slightly anaemic and bloated...

Anyway all you need to do is, simply, throw a few handfuls of fresh, crunchy runner beans in a bowl with thinly sliced peppers, cubes of feta cheese, kalamata olives (preferably), whatever herbs you happen to have (in this instance marjoram, mint, parsley but use whatever) and a dressing made from crushed garlic, olive oil and lemon juice with salt and pepper. It's sooo good (and healthy).
