About this recipe: You can not get more Greek than that!! This is a simple salad I regularly eat. I just love feta cheese.

Nikkikitten London, England, UK

Serves: 2 

  • 2 large beef tomatoes (please only those)
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled
  • 1 green pepper, deseeded
  • 1 medium onion
  • 10 black Kalamata olives
  • 100g feta cheese (sheep or goat preferable)
  • Plenty of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Prep:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Chop the tomatoes, cucumber and pepper into medium pieces, quite rustique if you wish, and put all in a bowl.
  2. Slice the onion into rings and add on top of the other vegetables.
  3. Add the olives and feta cheese in a big piece, or, if you prefer, cubed.
  4. Pour the olive oil and vinegar on top. Sprinkle with the oregano.


Always use plenty of olive oil and a bit of bread to dunk it all up. Olive oil is rich in Omega 3 and low in the Omega 6 (the one to watch), the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest!!!!
