Greek Salad

Also known as Horiatiki Salad, this is a simple salad but filled with so many unique tastes. The flavor of the Feta cheese, the briny-ness of olives, the tastes of garlic and green bell peppers “cooked” in red wine vinegar, and lemon. The taste of real dried Greek oregano (if you can find it) but even the store bought if you can’t. For those of you have been to Greece, it will bring back memories. For those who have not yet been, it will make you even more keen to go.
