DIRECTIONS

  • Slice the onion very thinly.
  • Mix with one tablespoon (sic!) salt and set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Knead the onion until it becomes transparent.
  • Then rinse in lots of water and drain.
  • Peel the cucumber.
  • Cut it and the tomatoes into large chunks.
  • Cut the celery and eggplant into smaller pieces.
  • Arrange nicely on four plates.
  • Grate the beetroots and put on top (mixing them with the rest would make the salad red).
  • Divide the cheese into four pieces and put on top of the beetroots.
  • Garnish with olives, capers and oregano.
  • Serve salt, pepper, vinegar and oil à part, so that everyone makes his own dressing.
