Food of the gods

I haven't posted anything recently because I haven't spent much time in the kitchen, and when I do I inevitably make this same dish over and over again. I crave it, it's all I want to eat, and I haven't yet gotten sick of it. That's right, the lettuce-free GREEK SALAD. Talk about food of the gods.
This is a painfully simple recipe and I apologize to everyone who has been making this for years and is disappointed by the banality of this entry. It's just so good though, and it's my most recent obsession!

Godly Greek Salad:

  • tomatoes (I use cherry tomatoes)
  • cucumber, peeled and sliced or chopped
  • red and yellow bell pepper, diced
  • pitted kalamata olives or other black olives, halved
  • chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • loads of feta cheese, cubed
  • chick peas (optional)
For the dressing:
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • red wine vinegar
  • oregano
  • one glug of soy sauce
  • one blob of yogurt
  • half of one red onion, finely diced
  • one half of a clove of garlic, crushed (or a sprinkling of garlic powder if you're lazy)
Chop and toss together all the veggies, but not the feta.
Whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing and pour over the salad. Mix well. Add the feta cubes last, since they break apart easily when you mix the salad.
