A healthy combination of crisp cucumbers, juicy tomatoes and crunchy bell peppers tossed with olives and feta cheese. The dressing is extra fast, just add to a mason jar and shake (or whisk in a bowl)!
When I think of summertime food, I think of fresh Greek salad. In this recipe, plump tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, green peppers, red onions, and feta cheese are all tossed in a Mediterranean style dressing for the freshest Greek salad you will ever make. I love Greek salad best with tomatoes fresh from my garden, and of course, supermarket produce works just as well (or stop by the farmer’s market if you’re lucky enough to have one nearby). If you are looking to jazz things up a bit, try turning this recipe into a Greek pasta salad or a Greek orzo salad with a couple of quick additions! Pair this delicious salad with Chicken Souvlaki and a side of Couscous with Tomatoes and Feta for the perfect meal!
VEGGIES This recipe is full of fresh chopped veggies: peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers! Simply wash and cut into bite sized pieces.
DRESSING Add a bit of olive oil, some vinegar, and fresh lemon and seasonings into a mason jar, seal the lid and shake it up! (My daughter loves helping make the dressing for Greek salad!)
RED ONIONS I dice my red onions and then let them soak in ice water a bit while I prep the rest of the ingredients. This takes a bit of the “bite” out and is completely optional.
OLIVES Kalamata olives add the perfect flavor to this recipe. If you aren’t a fan, you can leave them out of this recipe or try swapping them for black olives, green olives, or even capers!
CHEESE While it wouldn’t be a Greek salad without feta cheese you can replace it with whatever you have on hand in a pinch. Some great alternatives are goat cheese, mozzarella, or ricotta!
