This is a really fresh and delicious salad, perfect for summertime! There are a lot of variations of this salad, but this is my mom's recipe, so you know it's my favorite!

3 medium tomatoes
1 cup cucumber
3/4 cup green pepper
3/4 cup red pepper
3/4 cup feta cheese (crumbled)
olives - as many as you feel comfortable with :)
3/4 cup Greek Salad Dressing

Chop the vegetables. Combine in a large bowl. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Sprinkle with feta cheese before serving.

For those of you who would rather make your own dressing, here is a 4.5 star recipe from

1 1/2 quarts olive oil
1/3 cup garlic powder
1/3 cup dried oregano
1/3 cup dried basil
1/4 cup pepper
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup onion powder
1/4 cup Dijon-style mustard
2 quarts red wine vinegar

In a very large container, mix together the olive oil, garlic powder, oregano, basil, pepper, salt, onion powder, and Dijon-style mustard. Pour in the vinegar, and mix vigorously until well blended. Store tightly covered at room temperature.

How do you like your Greek Salad? Do you have a preference of dressing?
