Ange’s Greek salad (Horiatiki)

A Greek salad in the TRUEST sense, as I learned growing up from a mother and garndmother who grew up in the mountains, on a farm and made everything naturally.


  • 3 – 4 tomatoes (NOT Roma; home grown preferred)

  • 1 onion (small to medium, red is best)

  • feta cheese (Either Epiros or Dodoni feta)

  • 1 cucumber (any size depending on your taste

  • Extra Virgin olive oil

  • Salt (sea salt is best)

  • large kalamata olives, pitted

  • oregano to taste

  • pepper to taste

  • paprika to taste

  • balsamic vinegar to taste


  • 1.

    Cut the tomatoes, the onion and the cucumber in small chunks. Mix them, add the salt, feta cheese, oregano and the olive oil.

  • 2.

    Add the pepper and or paprika and or balsamic vinegar depending upon your own taste.


Do Not cut the fetta TOO large unless you are making a modern version and not this recipe. Allow the salad to settle for about 15 or so min before eating so that the herbs and vinegar take effect

Angus have you tried a Retsina with this meal? Very different wines but so appropriate with teh right meal. I prefer the red myself
