Olives we tasted recently. Tasted something tasted, only what to do, until the end and were not clear. Therefore, we eat them in kind (canned, of course), or decorate with olives different dishes. At best, put them into the pizza or in-bag. However, in some salads, we also add olives or olive (that's how call), but salads, olive reason pamper themselves rare. Best known for our salad with olives - Greek.
By the way, the naming of the same fetal olives taken only in Russia. Somehow we call green fruit olives and black olives. In fact both - olives. Only green olives - is unripe fruit of the tree of olives (olives) and the black are already ripe olives. However, some unscrupulous manufacturers manage to make black and green olives. But let it remain on their conscience, and we'll still try to pamper yourself salad of olives. Wow where to start somewhere!
To begin with culinary classics. Greek salad is very, very similar to our traditional summer salad with cucumbers and tomatoes. However, it makes special olives and feta cheese is soft. This cheese is available for sale in our stores, and even labeled as "cheese for Greek salad." There are also the original and substitute feta, which can also be used for Greek salad. For example, cheese or even Sirtaki feta analogues of domestic production. However, the latter are usually not cheese and cheese product.

The recipe of this salad even in Greece exists in various embodiments. So that the proposed structure - one of the possible. The undeniable advantages of this salad mayonnaise and in the absence of the need for advance preparation of ingredients (boiling vegetables). So my vegetables, onions clean from the skin and seeds from the peppers. Sliced cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers into cubes, and onion rings.

Now you can "collect" salad. Some of this salad is not stirred at all, and some are first mixed all the vegetables, season them, and then add the remaining ingredients. Both options are valid, but in each salad served in portions. Try the first option (as in the restaurant!), When the salad is placed on a plate layers. First, put the sliced cucumbers and a bit of salt, without stirring. In the laid cucumbers tomatoes, season with salt, too, that, pour butter (very little) and sprinkle with oregano. Then put the peppers and then add a little salt oil.
Putting salad gorochkoy and spread her onion rings. On top place the whole onion olives and finally (the last chord) - cheese cubes. Can be served. By the way, keep in mind that feta cheese very, very soft and greasy. In a salad it's a little "floats", which is why the Greek salad is not stirred. As an alternative to filling can be made vinaigrette, for which you need to mix oil with vinegar, oregano and salt. Such a dressing poured over each layer of salad, already without adding salt.
