Delicious! I had a little dish right after I made it (with balsamic vinegar), and can't wait to taste it later after it marinates a while. Great way to use up the tomatoes and cucumbers we have in our garden! I had a yellow banana pepper (little spicy), so I added about half of it chopped fine to give the final dish a little kick. Thanks for sharing, we will be having this often when we're in peak season.
- 8 firm roma tomatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks (or other type small)
- 2 cucumbers, peeled, cut in half and seeds scooped out with a spoon and cut into 1/2-inch slices
- 1 large red onion, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
- 1 (12 ounce) jar kalamata olives, drained
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 lb feta cheese, drained and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, balsamic is better
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice (fresh)
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced finely
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄8 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
