Serves 4 to 6
1. Toss the cucumber, tomatoes, onion, bell pepper and olives together in a large salad bowl and top with slices of feta.
2. Crush the oregano in your hand to release its fragrant essential oils, then sprinkle over the salad along with capers (if using).
3. Drizzle the lemon juice over the salad, then the olive oil. Set aside to marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes or serve immediately with some lemon wedges alongside for added zest. The feta is quite salty, which usually eliminates the need for added salt.
4. Give the salad a taste before serving and sprinkle a pinch of salt over the tomatoes and cucumbers, if desired.
