  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt, pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, for garnish

Step 1Mix together the pilaf, grapes, olives and most of the almonds, and toss.

Step 2Make a mixed green salad and dress it lightly with olive oil and just a touch of balsamic vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4At the table, toss everything together before serving.
