Serves six

2 pounds Campari or Kumato tomatoes, peeled, hulled and cut into 2-inch pieces (see note below)

4 mini cucumbers (seeded) or 1 English (seedless) cucumber, cut into 1-inch pieces

½ small red onion, cut into thin slices

½ small daikon radish, peeled and cubed

10 red radishes, trimmed and cut into quarters

½ small jalapeño pepper, seeded, if desired, cut crosswise into thin slices

1 cup pitted kalamata olives (may substitute other Greek olives)

½ teaspoon kosher salt

2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon dried Greek oregano

½ cup Greek olive oil

One 8-ounce block feta cheese, cut into six equal slices

1. Combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, daikon and red radishes, jalapeño, olives, salt, vinegar, ½ teaspoon of the oregano and ¼ cup of the oil in a large bowl. Toss to coat evenly and incorporate.

2. Divide evenly among individual plates. Top each portion with a slice of feta. Sprinkle the cheese with the remaining oregano and drizzle with the remaining oil.

Note: To peel and seed tomatoes, bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Have ready a bowl of ice water. Cut an “X” in the bottom of each tomato and remove the stem. Working with one at a time, place the tomato in the boiling water for 15 seconds. Use a slotted spoon to quickly transfer it to the ice water. The skin should slip off.
