Greek Salad

Achieve the big bold authentic flavours the Greek salad is known for with Jamie Oliver’s recipe.


Jamie says: "The trick to this recipe is to pay attention to the small details that make it so wonderful: things like finding the ripest tomatoes, good Greek olive oil, beautiful olives, creamy feta and lovely herbs. I’ve been known to pop leftover Greek salad into a liquidizer with a splash of extra virgin olive oil and a few ice cubes, then blitz it up to a smooth consistency so it's basically a Greek gazpacho. It’s not a classic thing to do, but it is very delicious, not to mention a great way of using up leftovers!"

It all depends on taste but...

Real Hellenic (Greek) Feta, eg Dodoni, Fage... (check where made)
black pepper, to taste
sea salt (not much) to taste
red wine vinegar to taste (NOT much though)
extra virgin olive oil,
kalamata olives, pitted and cut in half ( larger are better but is is, again, your taste
lettuce all torn up by hand(I grew up with the wonderful wild lettuce)
some peppers/ capsicum sliced (traditionally green, but...)
onions sliced (red is tastier, but...)
cucumber sliced

Mix all together. Enjoy.
Note that some will add other herbs as well, depending on your village and what was growing nearby
