Tom likes to frequently have what he calls "chunk salad" as a side, which usually consists of cucumber, tomato, and onion cut in chunks and dressed with a little olive oil and red wine vinegar. I dressed this one up a bit by adding kalamata olives and cubes of kasseri cheese . Kasseri is a sheep's milk cheese with Greek origins. I think it's most famously used for "flaming cheese" in Greek restaurants (an appetizer we like to make in the summer). It's pretty available at Mediterranean food stores and large cheese counters. Instead of vinegar, I dressed this salad with olive oil and lemon juice...really refreshing!
