Greek Salad

As the summer produce starts to pour in, this fresh-from-the-garden treat becomes a regular side to all of my backyard BBQs and picnics.  It is light, refreshing and doesn’t include mayonnaise, which tends to be a big worry for most picnic goers.

Greek Salad:

3 medium-sized tomatoes, diced
3 cucumbers, diced
2 medium-sized green peppers seeded and diced
5-10 Kalamata olives (or 10-15 green olives)
1 tbsp capers
1/4 – 1/2 pound feta cheese
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp oregano
Salt and black pepper to taste

Add the tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers,olives and capers into a large bowl. Crumble the feta cheese and add to the bowl with the other ingredients. Add the oregano and olive oil. Make sure everything is well-combined. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chilled
