Hellenic (Greek) country salad. To many, this is known as kalokerini salata, a Greek summer salad. For others, it is a colorful salad that may have first been tasted in a local Greek restaurant. It is wonderful and easy to make, especially when garden vegetables are at their prime. For best results, always use feta cheese and Kalamata olives.

  3. Coarsely chop cucumber, green pepper, and onion.
