Sounds delicious-- my kind of food. I make a salad almost every day with mos of these ingredients-- on top of some lettuce or spinach.

The red onion gives it that nice "armpit" aroma! ahahha!! It's really not right w/o the red onion. so just use less.

Love this recipe! Very popular in my area because most of the restaurants and all the pizza shops are owned by Greeks! I forget what it is called on the menu but I know it is a "village" salad. Thanks for sharing this. Up and shared.

Thanks JS. And everyone else. I love this recipe, but have a tooth brush ready when finished! The red onion is really strong!

Like you said, "Red Onion gives it that 'armpit' aroma". I eat so many onions and do much garlic that my blood is thin and I wear out tooth brushes. That's exactly why I love great cheese and Greek salads. This recipe is no exception. Thank you.
