    OK, why don’t I start.
    Greek Horiatiki! Otherwise known as peasants salad or farmers salad.
    Its yummy. Its healthy. Its made of veggies.
    The good thing is you can adjust to your personal taste. Dont like something? Leave it out.

    Yield: Serves 4-6
    4-5 large, ripe, tomatoes
    1 large red onion
    1 cucumber
    1 green bell pepper
    1/4 pound of Greek feta cheese, sliced or cumbled
    dried oregano
    sea salt
    top quality extra virgin olive oil
    1 dozen Greek olives (Kalamata, green Cretan olives, etc.)
    pickled pepperoncini hot peppers (garnish-optional)
    1 tablespoon of water (optional)

    Wash and dry the tomatoes, cucumber, and green pepper. Clean off the outer skin from the onion, wash, and dry.

    Cut the tomatoes into bite-sized irregularly shaped chunks, removing the core. Salt lightly.

    Slice the cucumber into 1/4-inch slices, cutting slices in half (whether or not you peel the cucumber is a personal choice). Salt lightly. Slice the pepper into rings, removing the stem and seeds. Salt lightly. Slice the onion into thin rings.

    Combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, green pepper and onion in a large salad bowl. Sprinkle with oregano, pour olive oil over the salad, and toss. Just before serving, place the feta on top of the salad, either as a slice or crumbled (as in photo), and toss in some olives. Sprinkle the cheese with oregano (and pepper if desired), mix the oil and water and drizzle over the top, and serve, garnished with hot peppers.

    Anchovies: if you like this salty fish, add a couple to the salad before tossing.
    Capers: toss in a few if you like them.
