Greek Country Salad

(Horiatiki Salata)



3 red firm tomatoes

1 fresh cucumber

1 red onion

1 green bell pepper

10 or as many-as-you-like black Kalamata or green olives.

6-oz. (170 gr.) Greek Feta cheese - sliced or crumbled.

½ cup olive oil

4 Tbs red wine vinegar

Oregano, salt and pepper


Cut the tomatoes into small wedges. Peel and slice the cucumber into thin slices, repeat the same with green pepper and red onion slices.


In a deep salad platter arrange the tomatoes, then the cucumber, pepper and onion. Place the crumbled or sliced feta cheese on top and sprinkle the oregano.


Last, whisk in a bowl the vinegar with salt and pepper. Add in a steady stream the olive oil.


For extra flavor add 1 tsp fresh lemon juice and dress the salad only when you are ready to serve it. You do not have to toss it.  The dressing makes its way all over!
