First make the dressing: Whisk together the mint, garlic, lemon juice and vinaigrette dressing and then season it with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
In a large bowl, or four individual bowls or a lunch box (this recipe serves four) layer the peppers, tomatoes, cucumber and spring onions, and then crumble the Feta cheese over the top and add the sliced black olives.
