About the dish:

Greek Village Salad, also known as Horiatiki salad, is a classic and refreshing dish that showcases the flavors of fresh vegetables, herbs, and tangy feta cheese. This salad is a staple in Greek cuisine and is perfect for summer or as a side dish to complement various main courses. Here's a recipe to make Greek Village Salad:


  1. In a large salad bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, diced cucumber, diced green bell pepper, and thinly sliced red onion.
  2. Add the Kalamata olives to the bowl. You can leave them whole or pit them and cut them in half if desired.
  3. Season the salad with salt and pepper to taste. Be mindful of the saltiness of the feta cheese and olives.
  4. Gently toss the ingredients together to mix them well.
  5. Sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese over the salad.
  6. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar over the salad, using about a 3:1 ratio (3 parts olive oil to 1 part vinegar). Adjust the amount of dressing to your preference.
  7. Garnish the Greek Village Salad with fresh oregano leaves or sprinkle dried oregano on top for an extra touch of flavor.
  8. Serve the salad immediately, allowing the flavors to meld together. It's best enjoyed at room temperature.
