Greek Salad

Jamie Oliver, if you ever read this (not that you ever will) know that I love you.. NOT in a way that would make my husband or your wife nervous but I have so much respect for the way you cook and watching your shows inspire me.

Ok, now that that's out of the way let's talk Greek Salad... I was watching Jaime's travels the other night. He was in the most idyllic Grecian setting with a backdrop of Indigo waters and alarmingly white stucco homes.. I was jealous. Then he starts making this insane greek salad with juicy tomatoes the size of baby pumpkins, cucumber, green peppers, olive oil... My husband and I were watching, opened mouthed and drooled just a little... Inspired and hungry, I ran to the grocery store today and made the most delicious salad ever. Please try this at home!

2 large tomatoes
1 green bellpepper cut into medium rings
1/4 cup kalamata olives
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onions
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cucumber sliced
1 block feta (or however much you like)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Gently toss the tomatoes, cucumber, onions, peppers and olives with olive oil, lemon, vinegar and a touch of salt and pepper. Sprinkle the oregano and top with a block of cheese and a good drizzle of extra virgin olive oil!
