Greek Salad

Tired of plain old salads? Here’s a quick, easy, and tasty one. I always have homemade vinaigrette on hand so I used that instead of the olive oil and vinegar.

Greek Salad from French Food at Home


  • 1 English cucumber, finely diced
  • 5 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 medium red onion, very, very thinly sliced
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • 11 ounces /300 g kalamata olives
  • 7 ounces /200 g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1 heaping tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup /125 ml olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine or Jerez vinegar (sherry), plus more to taste
  • Drop balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


In a large bowl, combine the cucumber, tomato, onion and pepper. Scatter over the olives, feta, capers, and oregano. Add the olive oil and vinegar and toss the salad well to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Taste to check the seasons and add more vinegar, salt, or pepper, as needed. Serve.
