Horiatiki is a traditional Greek salad made with tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, feta cheese and kalamata olives. Green bell peppers and some lettuce can be added too. It is seasoned with salt, pepper and oregano. Though people sometimes use Greek dressing but traditionally only olive oil is used.
This month in our group, Shhhhhhh Cooking Secretly the theme is Summer Salads. I was paired with Amrita Iyer who blogs at , " The Food Samatitan " ..Do check her space for lovely recipes.
 Amrita chose my two ingredients, Cucumbers and Feta cheese. I decided to go for the classic Greek salad which is light and healthy one... a perfect choice for summer.

Cucumbers .... 1 (sliced)
Cherry tomatoes .. 10 - 12 (you can use the normal sliced tomato also)
Onions .............. 1 small (sliced)
Green bell pepper .. 1 small (thinly sliced)
Baby lettuce ........... as needed (you can use any variety available)
Oregano (fresh) ............. 1 tbsp chopped (use dried one if fresh is not available)
Feta cheese ................... 100 gms
Kalamata olives ............. 10 - 12
Extra virgin olive oil ...... 5-6 tbsps
Vinegar ................ 1 tbsp
Salt ............................. to taste (remember the feta cheese is very salty and add salt carefully)

1.Take all the sliced vegetables in a large bowl.
2. Pour the vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano in a jar and shake it well.
3. Add the feta cheese cubes, fresh oregano leaves and olives to the salad.
4.  Pour the prepared olive oil dressing into the salad and mix very carefully as feta cheese is very soft.
5. Serve it on a bed of lettuce leaves and garnish with some cherry tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese.
Serves - 2
