Cypriot Salad With A Twist

This salad is perfect to make in advance - it tastes even better after a day or two - and with pops of green and red, it's pretty much made for Christmas!

Pair it with your choice of protein or serve it as a side - this one has been paired with seared feta (exactly how you'd sear haloumi) - yum!
