Greek Salad

imageI really have to start taking pictures with a camera.  Bear with me while I get that all sorted out.  This is such a real nice salad for the summer or any time of the year for that matter.  It was given to me by my friend G G a long time ago and it is a crowd pleaser whenever I make it.  I am now formally going to write it down because if I don’t I’ll probably have to call G G and get a list of the ingredients again.  I’m horrible at remembering things if I don’t write them down.  That’s probably why I do everything by site or by taste.  Here’s how this super simple and quick and easy salad is made.

imageYou need to chop up your peppers into bite size pieces.  Next chop your tomatoes and English cucumber.

imageNow comes the assembly.  Place all your cut veggies into a big bowl.  Add your Greek spices, pepper, salt, feta cheese and whole black olives.  I use the pitted ones but you can certainly use the ones with the pits.  Just tell your guests.

imageNext add olive oil

imageRed wine vinegar

imageMix together.  I’m always tasting this salad.  The colours are so beautiful.

imagePlace on a platter or in a lovely bowl and serve.  Yummy and really good for you.
