Travelling through Greece on my way to the airport in Athens, I stopped off at a little village for lunch. It was here that I had the opportunity to chat to the local ladies and get a few recipes. What I love about Greece is that the ingredients is so fresh that you can actually taste the food before it hits your mouth.
Coming from South Africa, I can safely say that the fruit and vegetables in Greece taste very different.
I am going to share with you a recipe for one of my favourite salads. This can be served as a starter with some freshly baked crisp bread or as a side dish.
5 Tomatoes chopped into chunks
1 Red Onion chopped
1 Green pepper sliced
10 Black olives
1 Cucumber chopped
Place ingredients in a large salad bowl, sprinkle your oregano herbs and drizzle generously with olive oil.
I prefer making the salad just before serving so that everything is fresh.
