Ingredients

Preparation

Remove the stem end from the tomatoes and cut into thin wedges. You’ll need about 2 to 3 cups. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, and cut each half on the diagonal into slices.

Gently combine the tomatoes and cucumber slices with the bell pepper, olives, red onion, garlic, dill, mint, vinegar and olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with the feta.

Serve as a side dish or as a colorful topping for Lamb Gyro Skewers.
