Horiatiki (Greek Country Salad)

Marsha Gardner


Food of the gods, fresh tomatoes from the garden, black olives you marinate yourself, feta cheese, either plain or some you have marinated. A nice olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice. A match made in heaven. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
