The quickest and easiest of all salads, this tomato and feta combination takes a few minutes, tastes wonderful, and adds an authentic Greek touch to any meal. If you don't have time or the ingredients for a full Greek salad, this is a great substitute.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large ripe tomato
  • 1/4 cup of feta cheese, crumbled or chunks
  • pinch of oregano
  • pinch of pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil

Preparation:

Wash and core the tomato, and cut into bite-sized chunks. Put the feta on top, sprinkle with pepper and dried oregano. Pour olive oil over the top - more if you like to dip bread, less if not - and serve.

Yield: serves 2

Note: If the tomato skin is tough, peel the tomato before making the salad.

Let children help
