Greek Country Salad
One of my favourite childhood salads is the Greek country salad, which reminds me of my idyllic annual visits to Rhodes Island with my family. What better way to enjoy the late summer tomatoes when they are at their peak than to make this iconic Greek country salad ‘salata horiatiki’. Last summer I chose sun-drenched, juicy heirloom tomatoes from the Balsam Farm Stand in Amagansett, New York for this vibrate salad. To these flavour-packed tomatoes I added sweet red onions, crunchy cucumbers, briny Kalamata olives and slabs of creamy, salty Greek feta sprinkled with dried oregano. This salad is just perfect for lunch, with some warm crusty bread to mop up the generous olive oil vinaigrette and tomato juices or as a side dish with grilled food. Enjoy making this simple, colourful salad this weekend!
