red bell pepper, chopped
chopped green bell pepper
cucumber - peeled, seeded and chopped
diced red onion
black olives, quartered
crumbled feta cheese
white wine vinegar
salt to taste
This is a delicious recipe which is easy to make. I chose to substitue Tzatziki sauce (also from allrecipes) for the oil and vinegar dressing, which I served on the side. I also added kalamata olives. It was great!
I agree that oil is too much though this is quite common for the Greek cuisine. In any case, it needs to be olive oil if you are looking for some Greek twist to it. And there is no need to seed the cucumber - it;s never seeded in Greece (though I guess there might be some difference between the products available in different parts of the world - are cucumbers so ripe that you need to seed them?)
This is a good basic recipe for Greek salad. I will agree with other reviewers that the dressing proportions are way out of whack. I used olive oil in a 50/50 ratio with red wine vinegar and some mustard, oregano, salt and pepper.
Thank you very good and tasty.
purple onion would have added color, but I didn't have one and used a yellow onion. Just as good. I added a 1/2 bunch chopped fresh italian parsley just before I added the dressing. And used calamata olives (drained and sliced). And 1/4c VOO and 1/4c veg. oil instead of all veggy oil
I made this for 200 people and it turned out wonderful! I didn't have peppers or white vinegar so I used red wine vinegar instead, I also used kalamata olives with it! It was perfect! Everyone loved it!!
Great! I used olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Hit the spot in the middle of winter!
