- 3 tomatoes, cut into wedges
- 1/2 cucumber (150g), sliced
- 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1,5 tsp dried oregano or basil
- 75-100g feta cheese
- black Greek olives
The secret to making a delicious Greek salad is to not simply throw all ingredients together. First, combine tomatoes, cucumber and onion in a bowl. Then sprinkle with salt and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
Tip: Letting the salted veg sit before adding olive oil allows for the natural acidic juices from the tomato to combine with the oil. This way there’ll be no need for lemon juice or vinegar.
Add olive oil and sprinkle with your choice of dried herbs plus grind black pepper to taste. This salad makes 2 side servings or 1 main. Add feta accordingly. Enjoy!
