Simply Delicious Greek Salad

Simply Delicious Greek Salad

It’s simple, it’s fresh, and it’s delicious – which is why Greek Salad makes the perfect lunchtime dish or an ideal side for dinner. Though traditional Greek salad doesn’t have lettuce, we’ve added some for a twist on this classic dish of olives, tomatoes, feta, and peppers.

It’s also perfect for a range of dietary needs – no meat, easy enough to nix the cheese if you want to go vegan. This recipe makes about 4 side or light meal servings, so increase the ingredients if you want 4 hearty servings for a main meal.

This is traditionally a ìsummer saladî in Greece, so it’s also a great way to use those straight-from-the-garden veggies!
