2 tomatoes, diced
1 lb. feta, crumbled
olives (I used one small can, diced)
6 pepperoncini, diced
juice of 2 lemons
several drops of hot sauce, or I used cayenne pepper
salt, pepper & garlic to taste

Mix all solid ingredients together. Toss with lemon juice, hot sauce and spices. Drizzle with olive oil & toss again. Taste to adjust seasonings.
- Pepperoncini, also known as Tuscan peppers, are sweet Italian peppers you often find on a salad bar or served with carry out pizzas. They’re available in the canned goods aisle near pickles or among the ethnic foods.
- Many similar recipes also use bottled Balsamic Vinaigrette on this salad, but do be brave and try this all-fresh version.
