    Serves: 4 

    • 5 large tomatoes
    • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
    • sea salt to taste
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried Greek oregano
    • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • Optional
    • 100g feta cheese, crumbled
    • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
    • 1 small green pepper, sliced
    • 1 handful Greek olives

    Prep:10min  ›  Extra time:30min resting  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Cut your tomatoes into wedges. Cut over the bowl that you're serving the salad in, so that any extra juices land in the bowl. Also slice the onion, and add to the bowl.
    2. Liberally salt the tomatoes and sprinkle with dried oregano to taste. Give them a good stir and allow the tomatoes to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes or up to a couple of hours.
    3. Just before serving, add any extras, such as feta, cucumber, olives and / or green pepper. Give the whole lot a good stir.
    4. Finally, drizzle with olive oil (you can add it to taste) and serve with loads of good crusty bread to mop up the gorgeous juices.
