We LOVE a fresh Greek Salad…personally, one of my favorites is served at Lola (http://www.lolaseattle.com/), downtown Seattle – so fresh, perfect spices and the feta is amazing!

Here is my version:

  • 2 cucumbers, halved and sliced (1/4 moons)
  • 2 or 3 medium size ripe tomatoes, sliced in wedges  
  • 1 medium shallot, thinly sliced (to taste)
  • pitted kalamata olives
  • 3 sprigs of fresh thyme, chopped 
  • dried oregano, to taste 
  • olive oil, to taste
  • balsamic vinegar, to taste 
  • salt/pepper, to taste 
  • lemon wedge 
  • 1 package of feta, drained and cut into 1/4 inch thick wedges 

In a large bowl, mix cucumbers, tomatoes, shallot and kalamata olives.

Season with thyme, oregano, salt/pepper, olive oil and just a dash of vinegar – to taste. 

Transfer to a serving platter if desired, and squeeze a lemon wedge over the top.  

Tuck the feta wedges in sporadically and serve!
