  • 1 Medium red onion, sliced thinly into half circles.
  • 4 Medium juicy tomatoes, sliced into bite-sized pieces.
  • 1 English cucumber, sliced into half circles. 
  • 1 Green bell pepper, cored and sliced.
  • 1 handful pitted kalamata olives (or black olives) 
  • 1 ½ tsp dried oregano
  • Kosher salt 
  • ¼ Cup extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1-2 Tbsp red wine vinegar 
  • 1 (7oz) Block Greek feta cheese in brine


1. Shock the onion: If you’d like to mellow the onion’s raw taste, fill a small bowl with ice water. Add about 1 teaspoon of red wine vinegar to the water, then add the sliced onion. Set aside to soak for 10 minutes or so.

2. Combine Veggies: Place the tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, and olives in a large serving dish. Remove the onions from the water and add to the dish with the rest of the vegetables.

3. Season: Sprinkle the vegetables with ¾ teaspoon of oregano and a pinch of kosher salt. Add the oil and vinegar (to your liking) then give everything a gentle toss.

4. Finish & Serve: Top the salad with slabs of feta and sprinkle with the remaining ¾ teaspoon of oregano and enjoy!
