Why is this recipe great? What’s its backstory? 

This is a very common recipe in Greece. We eat this salad every day during summertime at my house and the vinegar is my dad’s addition to make the salad have a twist & taste even better. Please note that the end taste is affected by the quality of the fresh vegetables.
