Classic Greek Salad

Classic Greek Salad for Two:

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 crushed garlic (Optional)
2 tsp fresh dill (better if you have fresh but dried will work)
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper, and extra for garnish
3 tomatoes—cut rustically in pieces 
2 red onion—halved and sliced into rings
2 cucumbers—sliced into thick half-moons
1/2 cup banana pepper - sliced thick with caps/seeds removed
4 oz (120g) feta cheese—cut into small cubes
20 (appox) kalamata olives

Place the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano in a small jar with a screw-top lid and shake to combine; or whisk in a bowl.  Place the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine just before serving. Garnish the Greek salad with a little freshly ground black pepper.
