Classic Greek Salad

The Classic Greek Salad should be part of every cook’s repertoire.

Serves: 6
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 large vine-ripened tomatoes
  • 2 lebanese cucumbers
  • ½ cup black Kalamata olives
  • sea salt
  • 200g feta cheese
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • dried Greek oregano, for sprinkling

Combine the onion and lemon juice and stand for 5 minutes. Cut tomatoes into wedges and cucumber into chunks.
Layer tomatoes, cucumber, onion and olives in two layers in a large shallow bowl, sprinkling with a little salt and remaining lemon juice. Cut feta into thick slices and arrange on top of salad. Just prior to serving, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with oregano.
