Greek Village Salad

In Greece horiatiki – village salad – is served throughout the summer, when crisp and crunchy salad vegetables are at their best.

Kalamata olives from Greece and a dusting of aromatic dried oregano provide the finishing touch.

  • 1 red onion
  • 250g baby plum tomatoes
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • 200g feta
  • ½ tsp dried oregano

1. Stone the olives. You can halve them and scoop out the stones, or use an olive stoner. Roughly chop the olives then scoop them into a large mixing bowl. Alternatively you can leave the olives unpitted, if you prefer. Just let people know before they tuck in.
2. Peel and thinly slice the red onion. Halve the tomatoes. Halve the cucumber, then take one half and slice it lengthways. Roughly chop it into bite-sized chunks. Halve the green pepper and scrape out the white pith and seeds. Roughly chop.
3. Add all the veg to the mixing bowl with the olives. In a small bowl, squeeze in 1 tbsp juice from the lemon and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and whisk to make a dressing. Add the dressing to the veg and toss to lightly coat.
4. Transfer the dressed salad veg to a bowl, platter or to individual serving plates.
5. Drain the feta and slice the blocks in half so you have 2 equal-sized rectangles. Pop on the top of the salad. Sprinkle the dried oregano over the feta and drizzle over a little olive oil. Serve straight away.
