Ingredients and Recipe
To make a traditional Greek salad, you must use the freshest ingredients you can find. The authentic recipe is actually quite strict, as a traditional salad with only include tomato, sliced cucumber, green pepper, red onion, Kalamata olives, and feta cheese. It will also only be seasoned with dried oregano and salt, with high-quality extra virgin olive oil and a splash of red wine vinegar for dressing.
To make your own Greek salad, start by preparing the vegetables. Wash them thoroughly, then cut the tomatoes into wedges, thinly slice the onion, cut the cucumber into thick slices, and add them to a bowl along with the olives. Season the vegetables with salt and pour some extra virgin olive oil and vinegar on top. Toss everything together, then serve with a large piece of feta cheese. Be sure to finish the salad with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle dried oregano.
