Authentic Greek Salad
One of the most memorable places I have ever been is Greece. I adored the antiquity of it, the food, the culture. Several foods stood out as outstanding favourites - moussaka in Santorini, creamy thick yogurt served drizzled with honey and fresh gorgeous Greek salad. This is an authentic Greek salad recipe from a tiny restaurant in Rhodes.
3 fresh cucumbers sliced into pieces
3 fresh vine tomatoes sliced into pieces
1/2 red (Spanish) onion very finely sliced
1 cup sliced Greek feta (sheeps feta is the best - and slice it, don't cube it)
1 jar pitted olives (black Kalamata)
extra virgin olive oil
Place the cucumber, tomato, onion in a bowl. Sprinkle generously with oregano (about 1 teaspoon) and drizzle generously with the olive oil and lemon juice.
Allow to sit for 15 minutes.
Add the cheese and olives.
Divine. Best salad in the world.
