This is a perfect recipe to tackle with the kids. In our house no one is much of a fan of olives, but feel free to add a handful of black olives if you prefer. We also like to toss this with a crisp lettuce at times. It’s perfect for a hot day, a picnic, and for cooking together.
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 medium sized red onion
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 long english cucumber or 4 salad cucumbers
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • pepper to season
  1. Mince garlic and thinly slice the red onion. Toss with olive oil, vinegar, and dried oregano. Set aside until you are done the rest of the chopping. I do this first, then call the girls in to help. Mincing and thinly slicing onions are tasks best left to the adults.
  2. Chop the tomatoes, pepper, and cucumbers. Toss with feta, onions and lemon juice. Add in olives and/or lettuce here if desired.
  3. Serve at room temperature.
