Greek Salad

Greek Salad Recipe
Much has been made about whether the plump, juicy tomato is a fruit or a vegetable. But they are, in fact, "fruits of the vine"-and that's how you should buy them. Look for those with firm flesh and unblemished skin. They should be heavy for their size and should smell good. Remember: For best flavor don't store tomatoes in the fridge; keep them on a counter.
