Greek Village style salad

Choriatiki or Horiatiki means village or country in Greek.When followed by the word salad it refers to a bowl of veggies consisting of chopped tomatoes, cucumber, red onions, feta cheese, and kalamata olives with lots of greek olive oil and oregano. In short it's a chopped salad! In some regions capers are also added to the salad, or vinegar.  This delicious mix is mostly eaten in the summer months when all of the ingredients are at their best. My version of this classic Greek salad uses the addition of fresh herbs and peppers. 
red peppers - chopped
yellow peppers - chopped 
green peppers - chopped
orange peppers - chopped
red onion - slices 
tomatoes - chopped
cucumbers - chopped
black olives (I used sun dried - not classic) 
handful fresh mint - chopped
handful fresh dill - chopped
handful fresh oregano - chopped
handful of feta - crumbled 
1 lemon - juiced 
a few tbs evoo 
splash of red wine vinegar 
s&p to taste 
PREP: Combine everything in a bowl toss and enjoy. This salad is good for 2-3 days.
