      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.

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

      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.
