  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Salad

  • 1 capsicum, sliced
  • 4 lebanese cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup kalamata olives
  • 1 cup feta, cubed
  • mint leaves to garnish
  • 1 tsp dried oregano (optional)


Instructions

Lemon Dressing

  • Add all the ingredients into a jug or large jar and mix or shake (if using jar) to combine. Set aside.

Notes

Storage
This Greek salad can be made a day in advanced without the dressing and then dressed no longer than 30 minutes before serving.
Olive oil - Greek law (but not really) dictates that any Greek recipe must have really good quality olive oil used. Preferably not extra virgin. The strong olive oil flavor is super important.
