17 Aug Horiatiki Salata (Greek Provincial Salad)
I used to have about one hundred cookbooks on my shelf. A few years ago I purged the ones I really never used. One that is a keeper is a product of the Memphis Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church called “It’s Greek To Me!” My copy was published in 1981 and I hope they are still printing it. All the traditional and authentic Greek dishes are there shared by some wonderful Memphis women.
This recipe proves that cooking doesn’t have to be difficult, and that buying fresh, seasonal produce is best. The ingredients are listed without quantities – because it doesn’t matter! Remember that The Curb Market gets a delivery of fresh produce from our very own Winchester Farm every Tuesday morning.
*judge quantities needed according to your need and taste
Tomatoes, quartered or sliced
Onions, thinly sliced
Cucumbers, peeled and cubed or round slices
Feta Cheese, cubed or crumbled
Salt and pepper to taste
dried or fresh chopped oregano
Red Wine vinegar
- Mix seasonings. Pour over onions. Let stand at least 10 minutes.
- In salad bowl place tomatoes and cucumbers. Pour onion with seasoning over these and combine gently. Add feta cheese and serve.
