Basic Salad Preparation
Using a sharp knife slice the Roma tomatoes and cucumbers to approximately ¼”.Alternately arrange the slices in a circle around the outer edge of a display plate,(individual or family style).
Next, place the olives, artichokes, and capers in a medium bowl and lightly toss with 1/3 cup of the prepared dressing. You can offer more at the table, as you only want to give the condiments a light coating. Place the dressed condiment mixture in the open center of the display plate so that the tomatoes and cucumbers encircle the delightful mixture.
Now sprig the outer ring with fresh basil , sprinkle with the crumbled feta. Finish with a generous amount of fresh cracked black pepper, and a light drizzle of olive oil.
