Harvest Recipe: Easy Greek Salad

This is the first post in the "Harvest Recipe" collection.  As you may know I have an abundant veggie and herb garden.  As I harvest these edible delights it's important to have a recipe on  hand.  The is no better tasting meal than one made from homegrown produce.

As the title states, this recipe is easy!  I make a few different types of Greek Salad.  This one in particular has no lettuce, just a mix of veggies.

Easy Greek Salad

3 vine ripe tomatoes, cut into chunks
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 cucumber, cut into bite-size chunks
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chunked
1 small green bell pepper, seeded and chunked
1 cubanelle pepper, seeded and chunked
1 cup Kalamata black olives
Several sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley, about 1/2 cup
2 (1/4 pound) slices Greek feta
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed in palm of your hand
Coarse salt and black pepper

Combine vegetables, olives, and parsley in a large bowl. Rest sliced feta on the top of salad. Combine oil, vinegar, and oregano in a small plastic container with a lid. Shake vigorously to combine oil and vinegar and pour over salad and cheese. Season with salt and pepper and let the salad marinate until ready to serve.
