Default Wave 1 and 2 - Greek Salad

This recipe is from Sunset magazine, April 2006 (hope it's ok to post)

Prep time: About 30 minutes
Makes: 8 servings
Notes: You can prepare through step 2 up to 4 hours ahead; cover and chill vegetables and dressing separately. Just before serving, pour cucumber mixture into a colander to drain off any liquid, then return to bowl and mix with feta cheese and dressing.

My note: to make more Sonoma-friendly, reduce the olives and feta cheese approximately by half. When I made this, I served the olives on the side and let everyone add what they wanted. In addition, I broke the feta cheese into about 1/4-inch chunks to give the appearance that there is plenty of cheese in the salad.

* 2 English cucumbers, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
* 2 pounds tomatoes, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
* 1 medium red onion, chopped, then rinsed and drained
* 1 1/3 cups coarsely chopped parsley
* 1 1/3 cups drained pitted kalamata olives, halved if large
* 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
* 1/2 cup lemon juice
* 1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
* 1 pound feta cheese
* salt and fresh-ground pepper

1. In a large bowl, combine cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, parsley, and olives.

2. In a small bowl, mix olive oil, lemon juice, and oregano.

3. Break feta cheese into about 1/2-inch chunks and add to vegetable mixture. Add dressing and mix gently, adding salt and pepper to taste.
