Ingredients

  1. 2 large tomatoes (about 3/4 pound) cut into thick pieces
    1/2 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and sliced
    1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and sliced into rings
    1/2 small sweet onion*, cut into thin wedges
    4 ounces sheep's milk feta cheese, drained and crumbled
    1/3 cup Kalamata olives
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
    1/2 lemon, juiced
    1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, or to taste
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and onions, and toss to combine. Crumble the cheese over the vegetables and add the olives. Gently fold to combine everything.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the oregano, parsley, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper. Pour over the salad and stir to combine the herb vinaigrette with the vegetables. Serve immediately.

Serves 6.

*To mellow out the strong flavor of raw onions, soak the sliced onion in water for 10-15 minutes before adding them to the salad.
