If you can, get olives not from the supermarket. I get my olives from a fresh market. A good deli would be great as well. If you can, buy your own olive pitter, unpitted olives taste better, pre-pitted olives are not as nice. Fresh markets or a good deli will let you try your olives first too.
I get Australian Feta, rinse the brine off as I use it (I like a mild fetta)
Dressing - lemon juice, olive oil and dried greek oregano.
Our really nice greek restaurant up here serves some tomato, a couple of onion rings (red) and some cucumber with a couple of olives and a slice of feta, about 2 x 2 x .3cm in size. Then they have the vinagrette over the top with a lemon wedge on the side (that is as a side salad).
Also make sure you season, and make immediately before serving.
