    1. Cut tomatoes into wedges. Cut cucumbers into thick slices. Slice onions, not too thinly. Cut capsicums into strips.
    2. Place all the vegetables in a bowl. Top with olives and pickled chilies. To make vinaigrette, whisk 3 tablespoons oil and all the vinegar until combined; add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle over salad.
    3. Cut feta into thick cubes or crumble coarsely; add to salad. Sprinkle oregano on top and drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil.

    cook's tip

    In Mediterranean cooking, oregano and marjoram are interchangeable. They have a warm, slightly sharp taste with an underlying spiciness. Oregano often has a lemony taste.
