Greek salad

Step by step recipe:

  1. 10 min.Greek salad : Photo of step #1
    Wash 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.

    Add the dressing and mix once more.

    It's ready.

Remarks:

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.
