Greek Salad

This delicious and healthy Greek salad is the perfect side dish for any meal. It is also great on its own!

Ingredients:

  • 2 handfuls of washed lettuce
  • 3 tomatoes or a punnet of cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 Spanish onion (1 used a brown onion as I didn’t have Spanish ones at the time)
  • 100grams of Danish feta cheese (you can use Greek but I prefer the saltiness  and firmness of the Danish feta)
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/3 cup of black Kalamata olives (pitted)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Method:

1. Cut lettuce into 2cm wide strips and spread out evenly over a large platter.

2. Thinly slice the onion and spread over lettuce.

3. Cut the cucumber into 0.5cm slices and spread over the onion and lettuce.

4. Cut the tomatoes into 8 wedges per tomato (or in half if using cherry tomatoes) and sprinkle over the other vegetables.

5. Top salad with the olives and cubes of feta cheese (about 2cm x 2 cm)

6. Drizzle olive oil over the top of the salad and season generously with freshly ground salt and pepper.

7. Enjoy!
