Preparation time: 20 minutes
2 big tomatoes
1 medium onion
1/2 red pepper
150 gr. feta cheese, crumbled
3 tbsp. kalamata olives, sliced
5 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
lemon zest from 1/2 lemon
1-2 tbsp. vinegar
Cut the tomatoes into wedges or chunks and add them in a big bowl.
Thinly slice the red pepper into thin stripes and add them in the bowl.
Cut the onion in half, then slice it thinly and add it in the bowl.
Thinly slice the cucumber lengthwise and roll each slice. Add rolls in the bowl. Alternatively slice the cucumber into half-moon shape.
In a small bowl, add extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, lemon zest, oregano, salt and pepper and mix very well. Toss the salad with the dressing and mix.
Add crumbled feta cheese on top and some Kalamata olives.
To finish, drizzle with some more extra virgin olive oil, if desired.
