Ive lost about 60 lbs eating this . Its delicious, filling and I look forward to making it . its fun.. I make about 4 portions and try not to have too much left over.. its crispier if you make it fresh each time. The tomotoes get a bit soft, but the dressing is very flavorful a day later too.

I take my time Cutting larger thick pieces of the cucumbers by laying it out peeled and slicing it lengthwise fourways.. then cutting crossways into thick pieces. I do the same for the tomatoes. I want squared chunks. It makes for the hearty feel of the salad. Then I Take a large square of feta cheese and make small squares, throw in kalamata olives or black olives about a handful. This all goes into a large bowl. I pour the Olive oil over it, add the vinegar, chopped Garlic , squeeze the whole fresh lemon in it, and then add the chopped herbs.. Fresh and dry. I try to use all fresh if available. I chopped the red onion into VERY SUPER THIN slices, and then chop the green onion knobs and all into thicker pieces.. I toss the whole thing together gently till its cover. Add Salt and pepper last and sometimes I like more garlic over it.. It marinades very well. serves 4 to double add more of each..

Options. I enjoy A chopped hard boiled egg, marinated artichoke hearts, Chopped fresh spinich.. ( LOTS OF THAT)
I have added raw almonds or pecans. But usually dont. Its very light and tasty. Now if you dont like Feta cheese. I chopped squares of Swiss or Muenster or some dill flavored cheese instead. you can do almost anything. The thicker pieces make you feel fuller.. and more satisying so you arent think THIS IS JUST A SALAD.. I also have had anchovies or other olives added too. If any is left. I place in plastic wear and give it a shake up.. then I serve it chilled later.
