Greek Salad

July 12, 2017 (Last Updated: July 2, 2019)

Fresh Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Red Onions and Feta come together in a delicious Greek Salad.

Our garden is just starting to produce fresh veggies. We are a bit behind this year. I am still waiting for cucumbers and tomatoes, but I am impatient!

Luckily the markets have an abundance of really great produce right now. I had to take advantage and bought some fresh tomatoes and cucumbers and made a delicious Greek Salad.

Greek Salad piled on a white plate.

Several years ago I ate Greek salads all summer long. My sisters had taken a trip to Greece and were crazy about this salad. When they returned, that’s all they ate. I quickly fell in love with it too.

Like many great things, it faded to the background for several years….almost forgotten! But now that it’s been discovered again, I think it is going to be a frequent visitor for the rest of this summer!

With this salad, I bring you a great recipe and also my first video! Hooray!!! There was so much to learn about shooting and editing videos! I’m certain the next one will be much easier to create. My recommendation: Make this salad and sit back and enjoy the video clip while eating the salad! Okay, you might only get through a couple of bites since the entire video is less than one minute long…you could always hit replay!

Makes ya hungry, doesn’t it! Now go make some salad! 🙂

What ingredients do I need to make this salad?

  • cucumber
  • tomato
  • red onion
  • kalamata olives
  • feta cheese
  • olive oil
  • red wine vinegar
  • dried oregano
  • salt
  • pepper

What can I serve with a Greek Salad?

This salad is perfect eaten as a vegetarian main dish or as a side dish. I often serve it alongside barbecued chicken or pan fried fish fillets. 

Don’t forget to PIN for later!

    Nice job on the video, Kathy! 🙂 I love a good Greek salad, and I could totally see how this would become a summer staple. I used to always order Greek salads at restaurants with the olives on the side, and then Laura would take all of my olives. But now those olives are mine! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, and good luck with that garden! 🙂
