After my son & his wife returned back to American, from honeymooning is GREECE, they shared their authentic GREEK SALAD eating experience with me & taught me now to make GREEK SALAD (just like the Greek do)!! Thanks to the honeymooners from Greece…I have mastered the perfectly traditional GREEK SALAD that is now a family favorite!! This healthy delicious GREEK SALAD, also know as HORIATIKI SALATA…is loaded with ripe tomatoes, cubes of cucumber, soaked slices of red onions, plump juicy kalamata olives, feta cheese, fresh lemon juice, drizzles of olive oil, and seasoned with oregano & pepper.
1 large cucumber, seeded & cubed
4 large roma tomatoes, cubed
1 medium red onion, sliced thinly, soaked in ice water for 10 minutes, and drained (this makes the onion sweet)

1 cup (4 oz) Feta Cheese
1/4 cup Kalamata Olives, leave whole or half
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Fresh Lemon Juice
