This is my version of my favorite salad and it's accompanying dressing. See below for a dinner idea.

1 Large seedless english cucumber cut into chunks
2 green bell peppers cut into chunks
1/2 Red onion cut into wedges
6-8 Roma Tomatoes cut into wedges
8-10 pitted kalamata olives halved (a good sub is reg black olives)
1/2 cup feta cheese

In the blender combine
4tbsp olive oil
the juice of one lemon
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp fresh snipped oregano or 1/2 tsp dry crushed
1tsp basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
cover and blend.

In a salad bowl combine the tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and green pepper. Toss with dressing to coat. Sprinkle with feta and olives .

*** I make this into a meal by eating it with chicken tenders marinated in the dressing recipe and barbecued on skewers. It's a quick and very yummy Souvlaki.***
