Step by step recipe

1 Greek salad : Photo of step #1Wash 1 cucumber, peel and slice (a mandolin is the ideal tool for this), then cut into sticks, and finally into small dice.

Put to wait in a seive.

If you prefer your cucumber softer rather than crunchy, salt lightly to tenderise and draw out some of the juice.
10 min.
2 Greek salad : Photo of step #2Prepare ½ onion and chop finely. 5 min.
3 Greek salad : Photo of step #3Prepare 4 tomatoes and cut into small dice. 20 min.

5 Greek salad : Photo of step #5Remove the stones from 30 g black olives and chop roughly. 5 min.
6 Greek salad : Photo of step #6Prepare a "citronette" (lemon) dressing, by mixing 4 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, salt and pepper. 5 min.
7 Greek salad : Photo of step #7Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, then add the fresh herbs and mix again. 5 min.

Take care to use the recommended quantity of olive oil; it's important for the end result, and ideally use Greek oil if you can.

Use a red onion if possible; they are available in the summer and are so good raw.

And to drink?: If you like it, why not the famous Greek white wine Retsina? Or a fruity rosé from Provence. To accompany this salad perfectly, drink one or the other, well chilled and in the shade.
