    © copyright 2007 by Ric Watson

    yields Serves 4 time---difficulty easy

    This is the Greek salad (horiatiki) recipe from our book, and it’s one of our favorite salads. This recipe is also on our site, and it’s become one of the most popular Greek salad recipes on the Web (it’s currently ranked number 1 for Greek salad on Google).

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and extra for garnish
    3 ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges
    1/4 red onion, sliced into rings
    1/2 cucumber, sliced lengthwise, then cut into thick half-moons
    1/2 green bell pepper, julienned
    16 pitted kalamata olives
    4 ounces (120g) feta cheese, cut into small cubes

      RECIPE METHOD

    Place the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a small jar with a screw-top lid and shake to combine.

    Place the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, bell pepper, olives, and cheese in a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine, just before serving. Garnish with a little freshly ground black pepper.
