How I wish I was in Santorini eating their world famous salata – Greek Salad. I just want to know how authentic Greek salad tastes. Considering the debt crisis in
priorities of my life, it is a very bad idea to get there….. so have to wait just like I waited for feta cheese. Well, for now, time travel is the
I had read in one of the glossy magazines about this salad as a teenager. Set forth to make it ….. but was utterly disappointed when I found feta cheese was not available in my part of the world. So skipped the idea altogether …When I found feta is easily available in my new home country, my happiness knew no bounds. I associated feta to Greek salad immediately, which was in the back of my DIY wish list.
2 large tomatoes, cut into irregular wedges
1/2 Cucumber, peeled, deseeded, then roughly chopped
1/4 of a red onion, thinly sliced
4 Kalamata olives
Feta cheese (go stingy on them, as they are super salty, use it crushed)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2 tbsp of olive oil
1/2 of a lemon
1/4 tsp of pepper
Place all the ingredients in a bowl. Pour the salad dressing. Serve them with bread and kebabs.
Opinions: Try adding romaine lettuce, bell peppers, etc., if you like. It can cut down the saltiness of the olives and feta.
