  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 c chives chopped

  2. Slice the purple onion into thin strips or round and sprinkle on top of the tomatoes.
  3. Use your hands and rustically tear the feta cheese over the top of the tomato onion salad.
  4. Sprinkle with the fresh oregano, dill and chives.
  5. Drizzle the salad with the olive oil and red wine vinegar.
