Easy Mediterranean Salad Recipe

Enjoy this delicious Easy Mediterranean Salad made with cherry tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, and red onions. It’s a great option for summer lunches.

Now that the temperature is so warm in North American, it is time to have dinner parties outside and enjoy the outdoors. One of the dishes that really screams summer is a good and delicious bowl of salad, don’t you agree? It is flavourful and lighter than other meals.

If you are like me, you probably love salad of any kind and eat them all year long, not only during the summer. I love salads that have seafood, such as Avocado Tuna Salad, Salmon Chopped Salad, and Shrimp Avocado Tomato Salad.

Mm… They are so good, super simple to make, and packed with good protein. Also, the salads with chicken are great and delicious, such as Pesto Chicken Salad and Chimichurri Chicken Chopped Salad.

But I have to say that this Easy Mediterranean Salad is one of my favourite salads because it has all the veggies I love like cucumbers, red onions, tomatoes, and bell peppers. On top of this, the dressing is made with olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic and is very easy to make, and goes really well with all these yummy ingredients.

I love Mediterranean flavour, like in my Instant Pot Mediterranean Chicken Recipe, so this salad is always a hit.

I also love this Easy Mediterranean Salad because of the sun-dried tomatoes since it adds lots of flavour. Sun-dried tomatoes are also good for your health. Why? They have lots of antioxidants, vitamins, and good-for-you minerals.

But when I buy my sun-dried tomatoes, I always choose the ones that are packed in extra virgin olive oil since this oil is good for you. Some brands sell sun-dried tomatoes with unhealthy vegetable oils, which are loaded with trans fat and various industrial chemicals. So, buy sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil like this one. You can buy it easily on Amazon.

Ingredients You’ll Need
Cherry tomatoes – you can also use grape tomatoes or Roma.
Yellow bell pepper – you can also use red or orange bell peppers as well.
Red onions – if you find red onions to taste too strong, you can swap for shallots.
Black olives – sliced in half. If you don’t like olives, just skip them.
Cucumber – I like to buy seedless cucumbers to make preparing them easier.
Feta cheese – crumbled on top, omit the cheese you are following the Whole30 diet.
Sun-dried tomatoes – I like using the tomatoes from a jar in oil but you can use the ones in the bag as well.
Extra virgin olive oil – you can use avocado oil as well. Any neutral oil is fine.
Garlic – freshly minced garlic is my go-to.
Lemon juice – I recommend using freshly squeezed lemon juice and not bottled lemon juice.
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Fresh parsley – or use your herb of choice. Fresh dill goes well with the Mediterranean flavours as well.
How To Make The Salad

In a large bowl, toss together all of the vegetables.
In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to make the dressing.

Pour the dressing over the salad mixture, and toss.
Top with fresh parsley.
How Long Does This Mediterranean Salad Recipe Last?
You can keep this Mediterranean salad in the refrigerator for three to four days, which makes it a perfect meal prep solution.

This recipe will make four servings. You can divide the Mediterranean salad into four portions and be prepared for lunch for the next four days.

Since there isn’t any lettuce in this salad, you don’t have to worry about it getting soggy with the dressing. The dressing “marinates” the salad is actually makes it taste even better the next day!

Tips
This recipe tastes great on its own for a quick lunch but is truly outstanding with some good quality protein. I love serving this salad with Garlic Butter Salmon in Foil, Low-Carb Salmon Burgers, or Lemon Roasted Breast Chicken and even with Rosemary Lemon Roasted Chicken Breasts. All these protein recipes are delicious and ready in about 20 minutes. Perfect for a light and healthy dinner meal.
