Traditional Olives & Feta Salad

Serves: 5

Greek salad (horiatiki) is an iconic Mediterranean recipe that is simply topped with a splash of Greek extra-virgin olive oil and a little red wine vinegar (or lemon juice). This recipe is a truly traditional Greek salad with ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, onions and creamy feta cheese.



4 medium juicy tomatoes, preferably organic
⅓ English cucumber, partially peeled in a striped pattern
1 green bell pepper, cored
1 medium red onion
½ cup pitted Greek kalamata olives
pinch salt
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1–2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
½ cup (4 oz.) Greek feta cheese (do not crumble), or more to taste
½ tbsp. dried oregano



1. Slice the tomatoes into wedges or large chunks. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then slice into thick half-moons. Thinly slice the bell pepper into rings.
2. Cut the red onion in half and thinly slice into half-moons.
3. Combine the tomatoes, cucumber, pepper and onion in a large salad dish. Add a good handful of the kalamata olives.
4. Season with the salt, then pour the olive oil and vinegar over the salad.
5. Give everything a very gentle toss to mix. Do not overmix; this salad is not meant to be handled too much.
6. Finally, add the the feta blocks and sprinkle the dried oregano on top. Serve with crusty bread if desired.
