Sounds wonderful.

In Northern Greece (Thessaloniki) the Greek salad is a bit different - often called a 'Village Salad':

Sweet Pepper (medium chunks)
Cucumber (sliced)
Onion (sliced)
Tomato (medium wedges)
Feta Cheese (medium chunks)
Calamata Olives (several)
Olive Oil
Oregano (or Italian seasoning)
Salt and Pepper

After placing first 6 ingredients in a bowl add oil and vinegar (a ratio of 3 to 1), oregano, salt, and pepper.

Toss well and eat with crusty bread (gotta have something to sop up that delicious dressing mixed with the cheese bits and veggie juices).
God Almighty first planted a garden, and indeed it is the purest of human pleasures. It is the greatest refreshment of the spirit of man, without which buildings and palaces are but gross handiwork.
