Ingredients

  • 1/2 red onion finely sliced
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cucumber sliced into half-moons
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 200 g feta cheese
  • A handful of black olives

Vinaigrette

  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add the sliced onion into a bowl with 2 cups of cold water and 1 tbsp vinegar to bring down the raw bite of the onion. Leave soaking for around 5-10 minutes while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  • Add into a salad bowl the halved cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, chopped green bell pepper and the finely sliced red onion after draining and rinsing it. Combine all the ingredients.
  • Add the feta cheese and olives. Use your hands to divide the block of feta cheese into chunks before adding it into the salad. Add the drained onions.
  • Prepare the vinaigrette mixing all the ingredients. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad, add salt and pepper to taste and mix all the ingredients together one last time so all the flavours are combined.
  • Serve or keep it in the fridge if you want to serve the salad after a few hours or the next day.
