Greek salad is light and refreshing. Made with fresh vegetables traditionally like cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, and olives. It’s dressed up with deliciously salty feta cheese and a super simple olive oil and oregano dressing. This salad can be eaten as is or served over chopped lettuce if preferred.
How to Make Greek Salad:
Greek salad is simple to make with no cook time involved, of course. It’s as easy as chopping up a few vegetables, whisking together a quick dressing, and chilling for about an hour for best flavor.
- I like to use smaller tomatoes like grape or cherry because they are just fast to prepare. If you have whole tomatoes from your garden or the store you can use those. I recommend cutting them into 4-6 pieces.
- After your tomatoes are cut up, go ahead and cut your cucumbers into slices, then cut each slice into four pieces. Next, slice your onion. You can slice it as thick or thinly as you prefer.
- Add your vegetables to a large bowl along with your sliced Kalamata olives and give a quick stir. If you don’t like Kalamata olives you can use black olives or even green.
- Next, grab a small bowl and whisk up your dressing. The dressing for this salad is balsamic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, and a few spices.
- Toss the dressing with the vegetables. Then, cover the salad and refrigerate for at least an hour and up to two days.
