This seriously good Greek salad recipe is super easy to throw together. Crunchy cucumbers, sweet bell peppers, flavorful cherry tomatoes, crisp red onion, kalamata olives, and tangy feta cheese all combined in a homemade lemony garlic dressing. You really just dump everything into a bowl , add the dressing, and toss.
Because the ingredients are sturdy, this Greek salad is one of those great make ahead dishes. There is no lettuce in it that will get soggy, and you can adjust the amounts according to your taste. If you don’t like red onion, don’t add as much. If you don’t like olives, skip them.
Prep time: 15 minutes
1 cup red onion, sliced or chopped
4 cups bell peppers; your choice of color(I used red and orange)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cups cucumbers, cut into chunks
1 cup Feta cheese, crumbled (I buy the Feta in brine- more flavourful)
1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives
Add prepared vegetables and crumbled cheese(reserving 1/4 cup cheese to sprinkle on top) to a bowl. Mix dressing ingredients together in a separate bowl.
*6 Tbsp olive oil
*2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
*1 tsp coarsely ground oregano. If using finely ground, use only 1/4 tsp or more to taste.
*1 garlic clove, minced
*Salt and pepper to taste
Pour dressing over top and toss to combine. Add reserved crumbled cheese on top. Enjoy!
