Easy Greek Salad

Everyone has heard of a Greek Salad but each version is slightly different. My Easy Greek Salad is my version of this well known classic. 

Summer is all about salads for me. They’re light and fresh and just what I fancy when the weather is hot. I do frequently make the standard salads with lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes with other varying ingredients added in; but these aren’t always the most exciting. 

One important thing to remember is that salads don’t always involve lettuce. I know that sounds obvious, but something that is sometimes easily forgotten. Not by the Greeks however!I’d never made a Greek Salad until recently. It was on our recent holiday to the Seychelles (Greece would have made more sense I know!) that I remembered just how tasty Greek Salads are and realised I needed to make my own Easy Greek Salad. 

As the name suggests, this is a Easy Greek Salad. It doesn’t take much effort or time to make a tasty salad packed with flavour. It makes a delicious side salad for a number of dishes, especially a BBQ. I’ve also eaten if to lunch with some salami for a Mediterranean inspired meal. 

I quite like adding the dressing to the salad even if I don’t plan on eating it all at once. The seeds from the tomatoes mix with the dressing which is something I like. If you don’t like the sound of this, just remove the seeds from the tomatoes. 

As you can see, olives are missing from my Simple Greek Salad because I’m afraid they are not for me! Feel free to add these if you’re a fan.

  4. When ready to serve, pour the some of the dressing over the salad and gently stir. Add to your serving dish and crumble chunks of the feta over

Recipe Notes

I like to use tomatoes on the vine because I think they have a nicer flavour. 

If you are not planning to eat this salad straight away, or have some left over, the seeds from the tomatoes will combine with the dressing. I quite like this but you may want to remove the seeds.  

Add as much dressing as you like, you may not need all of it.

    Yes, I have a go-to Greek salad of my own. I came up with it out of necessity because my garden was overflowing with cukes and tomatoes! I love the big, hearty chunks you have going on in your version. I’m also a big fan of the fresh oregano in the dressing: I haven’t tried that before, but I happen to have oregano growing in my garden this year, so BOOM.

      Haha that took me a while to work out what a cuke was but I love it! I do love a big chunk in this salad. I’ve only just recently started growing herbs and love them! I have my little herb ladder now and the fresh oregano smells amazing! I’m out there watering them everyday. I can’t believe I didn’t grow them before! The dressing really makes this salad in my opinion.
