Rita Heikenfeld's Lebanese Tomato Cucumber Salad

No real recipe here but here’s how I do it:

Mix together gently:
2-3 large tomatoes, chopped or grape or cherry tomatoes cut in half
1 bunch green onions, sliced thin, white and green part both or equivalent red onion, chopped
1 English cucumber, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, cut into slivers
Fresh mint, chopped, to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped, to taste

Drizzle over salad and taste as you go along:
Olive oil, to taste
Lemon juice, to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Garnish with Feta cheese
