Sharon, this is a very good plain greek salad! It is refreshing and very tasty! The cucumber, tomatoes and feta go great together and the pepper and oil are the perfect light dressing for them!
I made quite a large quantity of this so that I could try using part of it in a pasta salad with additional herbs and some sun-dried tomatoes and pesto sauce. Great!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this recipe with us!

DH would eat salad everyday if I made it. He really enjoyed this one. Made for ZWT6 -No-Nonsense Nibblers
This was fresh and delicious. My bf doesn't like lemon juice, so I used balsamic vinegar and left out the onions for both of us. I used an English cucumber and it didn't even sweat out any water. I will definitely make this one again, thanks for sharing
