Zombra The Greek Salad

I had the opportunity to attend the Caring Place Community Kitchen in the month of August. I had not been to this kitchen for a long time.

This kitchen started with a Greek Salad. The dressing was really nice.

  • 1 large red onion, coarsely diced
  • 2 long cucumbers, unpeel, cut into 1/2″ cubes
  • 2 each green and red bell peppers, stemmed, seeded and cut into 1/2″ squares
  • 6 to 8 oz feta cheese coarsely crumbled
  • 1/2 cup Greek Kalamata olives, seeded, half
  • 4 tablespoons minced fresh mint leaves or parsley
