Whenever I go to Greece, the first dish I usually order is Xoriatiki (Greek Salad). You just can’t beat the freshness and flavour; the combination of red onion and feta is just sublime. There are only 6 ingredients for a real Greek Salad, which should be as fresh as possible – and it doesn’t include lettuce (even Cos lettuce!)
In a large bowl mix together:
Juicy red tomatoes, cut into chunks
Peeled cucumber, cut into chunks
Green pepper, cut into thin slices
Red onion, cut into thin slices
Place a slice, or chunks, of feta cheese on the top and add some Black Olives (Kalamata are best)
Dress with vinegar and olive oil and enjoy with some fresh bread. Kali Orexi!
