  1. I'd throw a few peperonchinis on there, too.

    1. Gotta have Greek Oregano in there for sure!!!

      1. One of our all-time favorites. We eat it at least once a week often more. I do all that you said although I use a dressing from a local greek restaurant which has oregano and other spices plus I add:
        Tomatoes (so good with the feta)
        peperoncini
        Fresh dill: finely chopped and tossed through - not too much

        Sometimes I make as a whole meal with grilled chicken breasts seasoned with a greek spice blend. Yum.

        1. I toss cut-up whole wheat pita bread with a little olive oil and salt, and then toast it on the grill until it crisps. Add to the salad right before serving - gives a nice little added texture.

          1. I like to buy the Kalamatas in oil and use the oil as part of the dressing.
