Greek Villager’s Salad (Horiatiki)
(Mr. John- Kids’ Gym Director & Personal Trainer)

 3 large, firm, ripe tomatoes
1 large red onion, peeled
1 small cucumber, peeled and sliced into 1/8 inch rounds
1 large green pepper, seeded, halved, and thinly sliced
1-2 long, thin hot green peppers, seeded and cut into thin rounds
½ cup kalamata olives
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt to taste
2-3 pinches dried oregano
1/3 pound feta cheese (optional)

Wash and dry tomatoes. Cut each in half lengthwise, core, and cut each half into thirds or quarters. Cut the onion the same way, halved and then into chunky wedges. Toss the tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, peppers, and olives together in a serving bowl. Add olive oil, salt, and oregano. Serve immediately. Optional: Crumble feta over salad just before serving.
