Easy Greek salad


(Modified from this one at mediterrasian.com.) Serves four as a side dish.

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 clove garlic -- minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 pint of cherry tomatoes (or substitute 1 medium sized tomato diced)(Cherry tomatoes keep better in the fridge, should you have leftovers.)
1/4 medium sized red onion diced
1/2 - 1 large English cucumber (sliced into thick disks and then quartered)
4 oz (120g) feta cheese --cut into small cubes
16 kalamata olives

  • In a small jar with a water-tight lid, put the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Shake to combine.
  • For best results make dressing a day ahead (store in fridge) for flavours to blend.
  • Put remaining ingredients in a large salad bowl.
  • Just prior to serving, pour half of the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine.
  • Add remaining dressing to taste.

That looks really good but I would have to leave out the olives.
