Low FODMAP Pepper & Lactose Free Feta Salad

Updated: May 17

Peppers, like people, come in all colours, shapes and sizes….and they are all equally amazing!

This salad has very few ingredients, yet is surprisingly super tasty and moreish!

It's Vegan and FODMAP friendly ; especially suited to those sensitive to fructose. Its also a good choice for those of us with Celiac disease, IBS, a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity.

The secret to the great taste of this salad is fresh peppers. The fresher the better! I used a griddle, coated in a little canola oil to grill the pepper chunks, skin side down. I then transferred them to a plate and added a small amount of chopped basil and garlic chives.

Garlic chives are a great Low FODMAP alternative to garlic, especially when used fresh in salads. I didn’t yet come across lactose free cheese that grills well, so I just crumbled the cheese on cold. If you know of a good brand of lactose free cheese that grills well, please let me know as I would love to try it!

Finally, I drizzled this pepper salad with a small amount of pomegranate molasses. Up to 5g is permissible.

What vegetables will you add to your pepper salad? You can really unleash your creativity with this no recipe, recipe!

If you decide to give this salad a go, please share your thoughts, pictures and recipe tweaks. Good luck!
