Traditional Greek Salad

Traditional Greek Salad

Greek salad is also know as "Horiatiki or Xoriatiki" which means "village" salad. This actually means that it is a rustic dish, made simple with a few good quality ingredients. No fancy presentation or preparation needed to impress with this dish.

When you serve Greek salad remember to set the table with extra olive oil and vinegar, for extra drizzling. This salad is perfect to serve with grilled chicken and crusty baguette.

Instructions:

The secret to make a delicious Greek salad is in the ingredients: juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumber, creamy feta cheese, good quality extra virgin olive oil and some tangy black olives will really make a difference.

To make this Greek salad recipe (Horiatiki), start by preparing your vegetables. Wash thoroughly and strain the vegetables. Cut the tomatoes into large wedges, slice the onion into thin rings, cut the cucumber in thick slices and place everything in a large bowl. Don’t forget to add the olives as well.

Season with salt and pour over the extra virgin olive oil and vinegar. Toss everything together, so that the flavors mix. Be careful not to add too much salt, as the feta cheese and the olives are salty enough.

Greek salad (Horiatiki) is always served with feta cheese on top, a drizzle of olive oil and dried oregano (a nice addition if you have on hand is a good quality blend of Mediterranean spices, a traditional blend of onion, garlic, oregano, lemon, and even a hint of mint).
