Horiatiki means villager in Greek, so this dish simply means villager’s salad.
125 g Greek feta
2 green peppers
1 small red onion
5 ripe tomatoes
1 handful of Kalamata olives
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3-4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
It’s typically made with tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, olives and feta. It’s then dressed with olive oil and vinegar. All of these ingredients are loaded with nutrients and considered staples in Greek cooking.
The vegetables in the salad make it high in fibre. Vegetables also contain many antioxidants and nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium.
The olives and olive oil contain healthy monounsaturated fats. These fats may reduce your risk of a heart attack and stroke, as well as reduce inflammation.
The feta sprinkled onto the salad is another staple of Greek cooking.
Feta is made from sheep or goat’s milk. It’s good for your bones since it’s high in calcium, protein and phosphorous. In fact, it contains more calcium than most other cheeses.
1. Crumble the feta into chunks, de-seed and slice the peppers, and peel and slice the cucumber and onion. Slice the tomatoes.
2. Combine all the ingredients except the oregano, oil and vinegar in a salad bowl.
3. Just before serving, sprinkle the salad with the oregano, season with freshly ground black pepper and dress with the oil and red wine vinegar.
All the best Jan
