Tomatoes, red onion and cucumbers are dressed with olive oil and finished with crumbled feta cheese and black olives. It's essential to serve this with good crusty bread or barbecued lamb skewers.
Letting the salted tomatoes and cucumbers sit for awhile before adding any oil is essential to a good Greek salad. The natural acidic juices from the tomato combine with the olive oil to make a delicious dressing, with no need for vinegar or lemon juice. Crusty bread is also a must so you can mop up every last bit of juice!
