Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Cut the blocks of feta in half so you have 6 smaller rectangles. Tip the tomatoes and peppers into an ovenproof dish, add the garlic and half the oil. Stir to combine, then scatter over the oregano and season with pepper.
  2. Lay the feta over the tomatoes and drizzle with the honey. Bake for 25-30 mins, until the tomatoes have begun to break down and the feta is golden.
  3. Meanwhile, add the onion to a salad bowl and pour over the lemon juice. Set aside for 10 mins.
  4. Add the cucumber, olives and spinach to the bowl. Pour over the remaining oil and season to taste.
  5. Warm the ciabatta through in the oven. Sprinkle half the parsley over the feta and add the rest to the salad, along with the mint. Toss to combine and serve alongside the feta and ciabatta.
