Fresh Greek Village Salad
This salad is just like my mommy makes. She taught me when I was a little girl and I have been making it all the time ever since. Seriously, it's so good I could eat a whole bowl myself. The only reason this would be slightly pricey is because of the olive oil, white wine, olives and feta, but if you're willing to spend a little for a nice greek dinner, you won't regret it!

Shopping List:

-1 Cucumber
-2 Vine tomatoes or 1.5 cups of cherry tomatoes
-1.5 Red onion
-1 Green pepper
-1 Cup of whole Kalamata Olives
-1 Lemon (zest and juice)
-As much Feta cheese as your heart desires
-3/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-1 Tblsp white wine
-2 Tblsp dried oregano
-2 Tsp Sea Salt
-2 Tsp Black pepper
-1 clove garlic, minced

You Will Need

  • Step 1

    Wash the cucumber, tomatoes, green pepper and lemon. Chop your cucumber into little half moons and put them in a large serving bowl.

  • Step 2

    Cut the top out of the green pepper and cut into chunks and add them to the bowl.

  • Step 3

    Cut your 2 tomatoes into quarters or if you are using cherry tomatoes, throw them into the bowl whole.

  • Step 4

    Now add the kalamata olives. I like throwing them in once I've done the cucumber, pepper, and tomatoes so that they marinate a little in the olive juice.

  • Step 5

    Now slice the red onion into thin pieces. You want to add the onion for taste, not to over power the salad.

  • Step 6

    Now add the feta. I go all out with the feta because it's so freaking good.

  • Step 7

    Zest the lemon right into the salad.

  • Step 8

    Now for the dressing. combine the olive oil, white wine, lemon juice, oregano, salt, pepper and garlic into a separate smaller bowl. Whisk together quickly to make a vinaigrette dressing.

  • Step 9

    Pour the dressing over the salad and toss. There will seem to be a lot of dressing but that's fine. The veggies should be soaking in the dressing to get the full flavour.

  • Step 10

    Leave at room temperature for 30 min- and hour and serve!

    Opa!!!
