Greek Salad Recipe
Ingredients:3 ripe tomatoes (chop coarsely)
1 long English cucumber(Quarter it lengthwise,then cut in short chunks) Do not peel.
1 med red onion (thinly sliced)
1 large pepper (red, orange, yellow or green)Remove seeds and slice thinly
1 cup black olives (leave about 1/2 of the olives whole and slice the rest to top salad)
1/2 cup Feta cheese- (Crumble)
Dressing: 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3/4cup vegetable oil or virgin olive oil
1 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
Just a bit of pepper
I like a clove or two of garlic minced in the dressing as well.
Directions:Combine tomatoes, cucumber, onion, peppers, olives and Feta cheese in salad bowl.
Add dressing when ready to serve. Top with olives and more crumbled feta.
5 to 6 servings Can be a meal in itself. Lots of vitamins and not sure of caloric value here. Just the oil and feta would be the most calories and a lot of the oil remains on your plate.
We now have a Greek grandaughter in our family (by marriage) and she gives this the thumbs up !
