Ina Garten’s Greek Salad

This is Ina Garten’s Greek Salad recipe. Now I don’t know how authentic Greek it really is but if Ina likes it you know it’s good!

 

It’s prepared with sliced cucumbers, pieces of tomatoes, olives (mainly Kalamata olives), onion, and feta cheese, seasoned with oregano and salt, and dressed using olive oil.

The dressing is to die for!
