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.

Serves 4

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)
dried oregano
extra virgin olive oil
lemon juice

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.
