In this classic Greek salad recipe, tomatoes, red onion, and cucumbers are dressed with olive oil and finished with crumbled feta cheese. It's essential to serve this with good crusty low carb garlic bread.

Ingredients

  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, cut into medium pieces or wedges
  • 2 cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 150g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 handful Kalamata olives, pitted if desired

Instructions

  1. In a shallow salad bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumber, and onion. Sprinkle with salt to taste and let sit for a few minutes so that the salt can draw out the natural juices from the tomato and cucumber.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with oregano, and pepper to taste.
  3. Sprinkle feta cheese and olives over salad. Serve.

Notes

Tip:

Letting the salted tomatoes and cucumbers sit for a while before adding any oil is essential to a good Greek salad. The natural acidic juices from the tomato combine with the olive oil to make a delicious dressing, with no need for vinegar or lemon juice. Crusty low carb bread is also a must so you can mop up every last bit of juice!
