Greek Salad
Here is an English version

Greek Salad is more commonly known in Greece as a village, country or rustic salad (χωριάτικη σαλάτα).

It is basically a combination of tomatoes, cucumber, onions, green pepper, olives and feta cheese with olive oil and oregano.

It tends to be the staple diet for Mrs. S when we go to Greece, as she is a vegetarian, so souvlaki or meat balls don't go down too well. Back home, Mrs. S frequently rustles one up, even when we are not pretending we are in Greece.


Here you can find out how Mrs. S does it.
