Leek, Spinach and Feta Slice







Leek, Spinach and Feta Slice

This pastry slice is very easy to put together and makes a delicious light lunch with a tasty salad on the side.  I love salty cheese like Feta and Halloumi; it makes this simple dish taste delicious. Perfect for weekend dining when you want something delicious without spending ages in the kitchen. Serves 2 as a main, 4 as lunch/starter.
