    Classic Greek Salad

    The key to a superb Greek salad is to use the best quality ingredients you can find. It is worth seeking out a superlative olive oil, for instance, and really good tomatoes

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 350g flavoursome tomatoes
    • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and finely sliced into rounds
    • 1 red onion, halved and finely sliced
    • 1 green pepper, halved, cored and finely sliced
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 3-4 tbsp Greek extra virgin olive oil
    • 200g Feta cheese, finely sliced
    • Pinch of dried oregano
    • 12 black Greek olives


    1. Quarter the tomatoes and remove their tough white core before slicing each quarter into thin wedges.
    2. Mix the tomato wedges with the cucumber, onion and pepper and season very lightly before gently tossing in olive oil to taste.
    3. Divide the salad between four serving plates or bowls, and add the Feta, arranging all the ingredients carefully. Season with some dried oregano and add the black olives. Finally, drizzle a little more olive oil over the salad and serve straight away, as a starter or side dish.
