Salata Horiatiki (Country Greek Salad)

     If there is any one salad I love above all others, it is the Greek salad. The combination of flavors is wonderful. There are a ton of variations on this salad, but this one from The Best Traditional Recipes of Greek Cooking is one of my favorites because it is Too Damned Easy.  It comes together in minutes and is a visually impressive dish. I, personally, would add anchovies to this, but the Wife isn't a huge fan of the little fishies, so I generally leave them off. Other than that, there isn't much I would change here. This is a winner as-is. As always, notes are in blue.

  • 3-4 tomatoes
  • 2 medium cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 5 ounces black olives
  • 2 medium green bell peppers, seeded and cut into big pieces
  • 2-3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt, oregano
  • 7 ounces feta cheese, cut into chunks (our ALDI only sells crumbled feta, so that's what we used)
  1. Wash and slice the tomatoes in quarters and place them in a bowl. Add cucumber, onion, olives and peppers
  2. Dress the salad with the vinegar, olive oil, salt and oregano
  3. Add feta, toss and serve
Good times!
