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.

Tomatoes, quartered or sliced

Onions, thinly sliced

Cucumbers, peeled and cubed or round slices
