Greek Salad

Greek Salad

This salad I learned to make with Chris, a dear friend of mine from Cyprus, while going to school at Indiana University. Ever since, it has been a favorite of mine, specially at large gatherings, for its ease of making, and because it is a salad that you can make a few hours in advance.


  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 8 tomatoes
  • 3 onions
  • 1/2 cup wine vinegar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons oregano
  • 2 – 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup olives
  • 1 cup feta cheese


  1. Peel the cucumbers lengthwise, leaving some green stripes in-between.

    Cut lengthwise in four and remove the seeds.
