2 cucumbers, peeled and chopped into bite-size pieces
¼ red onion, chopped into small pieces
6 roma tomatoes, chopped
2 green bell peppers, chopped

In a large bowl toss together tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, 1 tsp oregano and feta cheese. Drizzle the
dressing on top and mix well. Top with extra feta.
