Go Greek this Summer with Author Sloane Taylor

GO GREEK THIS SUMMER

From Sloane Taylor

This fun recipe serves two for a terrific lunch. Add a loaf of crusty bread and a bottle of crisp white wine and let the afternoon take you where it will.

GREEK SALAD

3 tbsp. olive oil
½ tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. garlic, chopped fine
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
3 Roma tomatoes
½ green pepper, seeded
1 small cucumber, peeled
¼ red onion, sliced thin
1 tbsp. sliced black olives
Feta cheese to taste

Whisk first 6 ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside. Do not refrigerate.

Chop tomatoes, green pepper, and cucumber into medium-sized chunks. Toss into a large mixing bowl.

Add the black olives. Mix by hand to blend the flavors. At this point you can cover the bowl and set in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

When it’s time to serve, add just enough dressing to moisten the salad. Don’t drown it. Toss by hand or with two large spoons.

Transfer to a serving bowl or individual plates. Sprinkle feta cheese across the top and enjoy!

This salad also works great with dinner and will serve four.

May you enjoy all the days of your life around a well laden table!

  2. You’re always welcome, my friend xxx

  3. Sounds yummy. Gotta try this. It has all the thingss I like except the feta cheese. Got a substitute for that?

      You certainly made me think, Catherine. 🙂 I checked on the net and found some alternatives to feta. Ricotta is the leader followed by Queso Fresco from a reputable grocery store or deli, Cotija which is a crumbly Mexican cheese, and finally Percorino. Please let me know if you use one of these and how it works.

  4. There are vegan alternatives to these cheeses for people like me, but I bet the salad is great without the cheese too!
