Sausage and Pepper Salad with Feta

It is very suddenly, and with almost no warning or lead-up, quite chilly 'round these parts. I swear to you, 4 days ago I was obstinately wearing a sweater and boots despite sweating all the live-long day, and now it is chilly enough that we've had to dig out extra blankets to put on the bed because I keep waking up freezing at 2 AM. I'm not complaining about the pleasantly brisk fall weather . . . but there seems to be no middle ground here in Utah between sweltering summer and blustery cold.

This recipe, though, hits that perfect middle ground between being warm and comforting for a chilly fall night, but it's still fresh and crisp and reminds me a tad of summer. Jeff and I loved this salad, and I'll admit that there were no leftovers after we finished eating.

Red and yellow peppers are sauteed with onion and sausage in olive oil, then topped with fresh feta cheese over a crisp salad--so delicious, and a great dinner to bring in some fall flavors.

I always love having some quick dinner ideas on hand for busy nights, and this one definitely delivered. It was ready in about 15 minutes, and only uses a few staple ingredients. I picked up Hillshire Farm® Rope Sausage at Walmart, along with some colorful peppers to make this meal. I often keep some Hillshire Farm sausage in the fridge for last-minute dinners, especially during these busy fall months. I love that it makes dinner so quick to prepare.

After a quick saute, place the sausage, peppers, and onions over a bed of lettuce leaves, sprinkle with feta cheese crumbles, and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette. Such wonderful autumn flavors going on here!

Sausage and Pepper Salad with Feta

1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1 yellow or orange bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1 onion, sliced thin
1 (14 oz) package Hillshire Farm Rope Sausage, sliced into discs
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
feta cheese crumbles
red leaf lettuce
balsamic vinaigrette dressing

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. When it is hot, add peppers, onion, and sausage, as well as salt and pepper to taste. Saute until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 8-10 minutes.

Arrange a bed of lettuce on each plate, and top with sausage and pepper mixture. Sprinkle with feta cheese, and drizzle each serving with dressing.


You can find Hillshire Farm sausage in the refrigerated section at Walmart, near the other prepared meats!
