Recipe

Santorini Salad

My friend Pam went to Greece with three of her childhood friends. They had made a pact that no matter where they were living, the year that they all turned 40, they would meet in/ Greece, so it was in Santorini that they swam in the sea, drank in the Jacuzzi and at salad for sustenance! It was the salad I was interest in, so we got to work, substituted here and there, couldn't quite get the mood back for Pam, but we finally got the taste.

Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 Fresh English cucumbers, chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 12 oz. baby tomatoes
  • 10 black olives
  • 10 greeen olives
  • 1 green pepper, roughly chopped
  • 9 oz plain/smoked tofu, cubed into small pieces (As a dairy dish this can be substituted with Feta cheese)
  • 1 white onion, cut in half and sliced into thin rings
  • 1 cup couscous, baked in a hot oven at 375 Deg. F until golden brown (cooked or uncooked - if it's previously cooked it may need a little longer in the oven to make it crispy/crunchy)

Salad Dressing

  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp dried origanum or oregano
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Pour dressing over the salad and just before serving, sprinkle with baked couscous.

Dressing:

Place all the ingredients for the dressing in a small jar and shake well.  Chill before serving.

Another delicious option is to add 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 cup water  and 2 heaped Tbsp hummus to dressing.
