Be game day ready! Perfect for any type of BBQ with friends with this wonderful traditional Greek Salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium ripe tomato
  • 200 g ripe cherry tomatoes
  • 1 beef tomato
  • 1 medium red onion , peeled
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 handful fresh dill
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves
  • 1 large handful black olives , stoned
  • Sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons good-quality greek extra virgin olive oil
  • 200 g block feta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Step One

I think it’s quite nice to have different shapes and sizes in a salad, so cut your medium tomato into wedges, halve the cherry tomatoes and slice the beef tomato into large rounds.

Step Two

Put all the tomatoes into a large salad bowl. Slice the onion very finely so it’s wafer thin and add to the tomatoes. Scratch a fork down the sides of the cucumber so it leaves deep grooves in the skin, then cut it into thick slices. Deseed your pepper, slice it into rings and add them to the salad along with the cucumber.

Step Three

Roughly chop the dill and most of the mint leaves, reserving the smaller ones for garnish. Add the chopped herbs to the bowl of salad, then squeeze your handful of olives over so they season the vegetables, then drop them in.

Step Four

Add a pinch of salt, the vinegar and the extra virgin olive oil. Quickly toss everything together with your hands. The minute all those flavours start working with the veg is when the magic starts to happen. Have a taste, and adjust the flavours if need be.

To serve, pop the block of feta right on the top of the salad. Sprinkle the oregano over the top along with the reserved mint leaves, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and take it straight to the table. It’s confident and scruffy with a bit of attitude. Delicious.
