Traditional Greek Salad

It's a great time of year for fresh vegetables, especially tomatoes, peppers and cucumber which are bountiful right now. We like to put them to use in a traditional Greek salad. It's such a simple recipe but the combination of ingredients - including feta, black olives, oregano, red wine vinegar and good olive oil of course - is surely a case of the sum being more than the parts.

Traditional Greek Salad

Serves 4-6 | Dietary: Gluten Free, Vegan Option

Ingredients:

  • 1 block of Feta Cheese (preferably barrel aged), cut into big cubes
  • A selection of the best quality ripe tomatoes you can find (try to use a nice mixture of vine, cherry and beef tomatoes - the quantity is up to your tastes!)
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 green pepper
  • Red onion-sliced very thinly
  • Good quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil (preferably Greek)
  • Dried Oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • A handful of chopped mint
  • A splash of red wine vinegar
  • A handful of pitted Kalamata olives

Method:

  1. Chop the tomatoes into different sized slices, wedges, halves or chunks.
  2. Peel and slice the cucumber and thinly slice the green peppers.
  3. In a large bowl combine all of the ingredients except the mint and feta, adding oil, vinegar and herbs to taste.
  4. Stir all of the ingredients around and leave the flavours to infuse for about half and hour.
  5. To serve sprinkle the salad with fresh mint and place the feta cubes on top.
