Greek Salad


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

Feta cheese


Olive oil


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.
