Recipe Tuesday: REAL Greek salad

Traditional Greek Salad

There is nothing I love more than Greek salad. No, not lettuce with feta cheese. But real Greek salad which is made without lettuce. That gorgeous salad above is Royal Caribbean's version of Greek salad, which (surprisingly) might be the best I've ever had.

This is kind of a summer recipe, but a favorite one, full of really good fats and veggies.

* 4 medium sized tomatoes
* 1 small cooking onion
* 3 ounces Feta cheese
* 2 teaspoons oregano
* 3-4 ounces olive oil
* ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste

1. Slice up the tomatoes into wedges, and place in a salad bowl.
2. Peel and slice the onion, and add. Sprinkle in the salt and oregano. If the oregano is in larger pieces, crush it up a little more beforehand, as it will help to release the oils.
3. Add in the feta cheese, which can be crumbled by hand or with a fork.
4. Drizzle in the olive oil.
5. Mash up the tomatoes slightly, and toss the ingredients gently.

This salad will serve up to 6 people.
