Simple Greek Salad Recipe

Greek Salad

If you have black olives in the pantry and feta cheese in the fridge, you've got the fixings for Greek Salad. There are garnishes such as anchovies and stuffed grape leaves out of a far, but most of us are looking for the cheese and olives, along with the oregano-scented dressing. Lettuce, red onions, and cucumbers make up the vegetable part, but I've seen perfectly acceptable Greek Salads that have only two out of the three. If you don't have lettuce, the red onion and cucumber version makes a more relish-like salad. Green peppers are less traditional but also very tasty, if you have them on hand.

Serves 2

  • 1/2 small head romaine lettuce

  • 1 medium cucumber

  • 1 small red onion

  • 1/2 cup feta cheese

  • 1/2 cup black olives (preferably Kalamata)

For the Dressing

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar or lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  1. Rinse and tear the lettuce leaves. Peel and thinly slice the cucumber (or cut it into cubes). Peel and thinly slice the red onion.

  2. Place the lettuce in a salad bowl, and arrange the cucumber and onion on top. Sprinkle with cheese and olives.

  3. Place the dressing ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake hard. Pour evenly over the salad and serve.
