Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. The ingredients in this salad are typical for Greece. It's a great side dish for any fish or grilled meats, alternatively serve with crusty white bread for a light lunch. This is for two people, but you can easily increase the amounts.

This was fantastic! I didn't have any green olives so just increased the amount of black olives. A wonderful healthy salad that I will make often!

We had this as part of a salad dinner along with a couscous salad and an herbed fruit salad. I didn't have capers or green olives, but I did have some good kalamata olives. I also reduced the feta cheese by at least half and used only 2 tablespoons of olive oil. It was wonderful!

I loved this! Must admit I didn't measure anything, but used close to the measurements listed. I didn't have cucumber, green olive or basil, so used more black olives and capers. I topped with herbed feta. This kind of recipe wouldn't have appealed to me before the zaar world tour, but now that I've given it a chance, greek food is amazing! Thanks Sylvie!
