Greek Salad

We love Greek inspired food which normally comes topped with a generous amount of feta cheese.  This recipe is wonderful without the cheese, but for those of you who must – add a little at the table.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped garlic
  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 large plum tomatoes, seeded, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cucumber, peeled, seeded, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, peeled, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, seeded, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamati olives coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, vinegar, oregano and dill weed together until blended. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Combine the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, bell pepper, olives in a bowl. Toss with dressing and serve. (Serve on top of chopped lettuce if you like, but it’s great by itself)
