Horiatiki Salata - Greek Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Peppers and Feta Cheese

From Jeanette's Healthy Living.

I used Greek Seasoning I found in a local Greek market - Penzey's carries one too. If you don't have any, dried oregano is just fine. The salad I had at the restaurant had anchovies. I didn't have any so I left them out - the Kalamata olives provide the saltiness here.

Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 cups assorted heirloom tomatoes, cut into cubes
  • 1 cucumber, cut into cubes
  • 1 bell pepper, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup kalamata olives, pitted
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese, cut into cubes

Greek Salad Dressing: 

  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Greek seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions:

  1. Toss Salad Ingredients together.
  2. Whisk together Greek Salad Dressing Ingredients.
  3. Drizzle Greek Salad Dressing on top of salad.

Serves 4-5.
