Greek Salad

Tomatoes with sweet, fresh peppers and new onions, a little garlic and some locally made feta cheese.

 There are hundreds of so-called Greek salads.  Here’s a simple one based on some of this weeks farmers’ markets produce.  Some cooks mix textures, chopping the tomatoes and slicing the onions, for example but I like to keep them all about the same size.

Ingredients for Greek Salad

  • 3 Tomatoes — cut up into 1/3rd  to 1/2 inch size pieces.
  • 1 Red onion — chopped a little smaller
  • 1 Red or green pepper — seeded and chopped like the onion
  • 1 Cucumber — peeled & chopped almost the size of the tomato.
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup Black olives — pitted and cut in half.
  • ½ lb Feta cheese cut into chunks.
  • Olive oil to taste
  • Fresh herbs (oregano, thyme, basil)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Preparation of Greek Salad

  • Mix all the ingredients together, season with salt, pepper and olive oil to taste.
