A few tips:
- I baked my feta cheese in aluminum foil, but you can also just put it in an oven safe dish, but then it will become a bit drier.
- I unfolded the aluminum edges when five minutes of the baking time remained to get it a bit browned around the edges.
- I used black kale when making my salad, but you can also use green kale or add more mixed green leafs.
- I like to fry my bell peppers until they get fry marks, but still hold some crunch sine it provides a lovely texture to the salad.
- Serve this salad when it’s warm.
