I just love this salad, especially this time of year when the tomatoes and cucumbers are so fresh from local growers. This salad usually calls for peppers to be added as well, but no one in my family particularly cares for them, so I leave the skins on the cucumbers for that beautiful contrasting color.

Greek Salad

To make the salad, slice the cucumbers 1/4-inch thick and add them to a bowl. You can use regular cucumbers, English cucumbers or even peel the skin on them if you prefer. Next, cut the tomatoes into wedges and add them to the cucumbers.

Finally, add the sliced onions, Kalamata olives, Feta cheese and the prepared dressing made with red wine  vinegar, olive oil, and oregano; then mix well to coat.

Not only is this Greek Salad flavorful and colorful, but this entire salad only took me about 10 minutes to make…BONUS!
