Melbourne, where I live, has a very large Greek population. Actually Greek community of Melbourne is the largest Greek-speaking population outside of Greece and Cyprus. And Greek Food is hugely popular here. This is my Greek Salad that I often make. As I always add salty Fetta and Olives, I season the salad very lightly. This salad is perfect for Aussie BBQ.
2 Lebanese Cucumbers OR 1 Continental Cucumber
1 Green Capsicum
1/4 Red Onion *thinly sliced
3 to 4 tablespoons ‘Greek Salad Dressing’
100g Fetta *cut into small cubes
1/2 cup Kalamata Olives
Greed Salad Dressing
*Note: This amount is probably too much for 4 servings, but it is the easiest measurement.
