Greek Tomato Salad Recipe

"My German father-in-law loves to vacation in Greece," relates Jerry Lappin of Garden City, Kansas. "After a stay on the sunny beaches of Rhodes, he game me the recipe for this zesty salad, full of fresh tomatoes, red onion, green pepper, ripe olives and feta cheese. I like to serve it for a light lunch with sourdough, French or Italian bread."

  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped green pepper
  • 4 medium tomatoes, each cut into 8 wedges

"This is a family favorite and one requested at church summer picnics. My children fight over the dressing when the vegetables have all been eaten."
