Traditional Greek Salad

Recipe courtesy of Mary Ann Esposito

This easy-to-make Greek salad is not only colorful, but also full of flavor and high in healthy doses of vitamins. No dressing is made beforehand for this salad; a good, extra-virgin olive oil is drizzled over the top before serving.

4 beefsteak tomatoes, cut into thick wedges
1 cucumber, sliced into ¼-inch-thick rounds
1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into thick strips
1 red onion, quartered then thinly sliced
½ cup pitted whole Kalamata olives
½ cup marinated artichoke hearts
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 small block feta cheese
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt, to taste

  1. In a salad bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, onion, olives, artichoke hearts and oregano. Place the feta cheese over the top of the salad.
  2. Drizzle the olive oil over the top. Add salt to taste, and serve with crusty bread.
