"Greek-style salads are my go-to on hot summer evenings—a satisfying trifecta of sweet summer produce, a tangy vinaigrette, and the briny saltiness of feta and olives. This extra summery version makes use of the very versatile honeydew melon to extend the coolness of the cucumber and bell peppers—on that note, if it’s a very hot day, let the salad sit in the fridge before serving. You can use red or white wine vinegar as you like and feel free to use a couple of teaspoons of dried oregano in place of fresh."
