Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes cut in quarters or halves, depending on the size
  • 1 cucumber peeled, deseeded and cut into pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper cut into stripes or cubes (note 1)
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into stripes or cubes
  • 1 red onion cut into rings
  • 1 block feta cheese 8 oz, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup olives note 2

For the dressing:

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar white
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Mix all the ingredients for the dressing together and stir. Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Toss all ingredients for the salad except for the feta in a bowl.
  • Pour the dressing over it and give it a stir.
  • Mix in the feta cheese.
  • Serve with fresh bread or flatbread if you like

Notes

  • Double the ingredients to feed around 12-14 people as a side dish.
  • This is a salad that really lets these simple ingredients shine. So, the better quality your ingredients have the better your salad will be.
  • You can top with a sprinkle of oregano or mint.
  • A traditional Greek Salad is topped with sliced feta not crumbled ( if you're a feat fan, it's far more satisfying that way!).
  • Serve with fresh bread or flatbread if you like.
  • You are free to use just one color of bell peppers, traditionally green ones are used. For more color use green and yellow ones.
  • Common is the use of kalamata olives, but I used a mix. Use whatever olives you like most
