Greek Salad (hits: 1577 )
|Added by erin||Country/Provence not provided |
2 English cucumbers, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 pounds tomatoes, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 medium red onion, chopped, then rinsed and drained
1 1/3 cups coarsely chopped parsley
1 1/3 cups drained pitted kalamata olives, halved if large
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 pound feta cheese
Salt and fresh-ground pepper
1. In a large bowl, combine cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, parsley, and olives.
2. In a small bowl, mix olive oil, lemon juice, and oregano.
3. Break feta cheese into about 1/2-inch chunks and add to cucumber mixture. Add dressing and mix gently, adding salt and pepper to taste.
If you're used to eating vinegar-based Greek salads, this traditional version -- made with lemon juice -- will be a delightful change.
You can prepare through step 2 up to 4 hours ahead; cover and chill vegetables and dressing separately. Just before serving, pour cucumber mixture into a colander to drain off any liquid, then return to bowl and mix with feta cheese and dressing.
Prep time: About 30 minutes.
