Classic Greek Salad
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey or sugar
Sea salt and pepper
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
16 (~ ½ cup) pitted kalamata olives
1 cucumber, peeled
1 plum tomato, cut in wedges
- Combine vinegar, honey, salt and pepper together in a salad bowl.
- Whisk in olive oil to emulsify. An immersion blender works nicely too.
- Cut olives in half. Cut peeled cucumber in half lengthwise; seed it with a spoon, dice into half moon slices.
- Add olives, cucumber, tomato, red onion and feta to salad bowl and toss gently.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Makes 3-4 servings
*Valbreso Feta, 100% sheep's milk feta, is a fresh cheese whose curd is preserved in brine, which gives it a characteristic flavor and texture: unique creaminess, no bitterness or aftertaste, never too salty and rich tangy taste. Store leftover feta covered in water.
I think Steve and Darrel are both very observant! Salad looked good too... ;-)

The pepper mill you used is not included in Kitchen Gadgets. Where might I find one like it?
