How To Make Greek Salad
Full instructions and measurements can always be found in the recipe card at the bottom of the post. This is a summary of the process to go along with the process photos.
- It’s seriously simple to make this salad.
- Add chopped romaine lettuce to a salad bowl. I love using romaine lettuce as it’s really nutritious but you can definitely use different kinds of lettuce if you like.
- Then comes chopped red bell pepper followed by sliced red onion.
- Then we have sliced cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber and kalamata olives. You can use black olives if you prefer them or even green olives!
- Top that with some feta cheese and toss it all together.
The Greek Salad Dressing
For the dressing we made a delicious vinaigrette with olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, crushed garlic, dried oregano and salt and pepper.
Pour that over the top of your salad and you have a gourmet meal.
How To Serve Greek Salad
Serve it alongside a delicious tomato basil soup. Or with some crispy bread on the side.
How Long Does this Salad Last
If you hold off on adding the dressing and store the salad and dressing separately then this will last a few days in the fridge.
So you can definitely make this greek salad ahead and store it in the fridge until you need it. Once you add dressing then it’s best to eat it within a few hours.
Make it Dairy-Free
You can make this salad dairy-free by either omitting the feta or using a vegan feta cheese. There are lots more options these days for dairy-free cheeses. The brand ‘Violife’ have a dairy-free feta cheese that is really good.
Alternatively you can replace the saltiness of the feta cheese with some extra olives and then just leave off the feta. This will still be entirely delicious.
