"My German father-in-law loves to vacation in Greece," relates Jerry Lappin of Garden City, Kansas. "After a stay on the sunny beaches of Rhodes, he game me the recipe for this zesty salad, full of fresh tomatoes, red onion, green pepper, ripe olives and feta cheese. I like to serve it for a light lunch with sourdough, French or Italian bread."

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion, separated into rings
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped green pepper
  • 4 medium tomatoes, each cut into 8 wedges
  • 6 medium pitted whole ripe olives, halved
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, oregano, basil, sugar, salt and pepper. Add red onion and green pepper; toss to coat. Stir in tomatoes, olives and cheese. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve with a slotted spoon.
