I love Greek food and I love salad… so it goes without saying that I love Greek salad. In fact, it is probably my favourite salad of all time. For starters, I could eat olives and feta cheese all day. I eat olives… out of the container… with a spoon… So, how can I say no to a salad that contains all of my favourites?

WHAT IS IN GREEK SALAD?
grape tomatoes – or cherry tomatoes.
red onion
cucumber
green pepper
Kalamata olives
feta cheese
romaine lettuce – lettuce is usually not in authentic and traditional Greek salad. I like to add a little to add some more body to the salad. Plus, I like the extra crunch.
Greek dressing – Greek salad dressing is easy to make at home with olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper.
Add some protein and make a full meal out of this salad. One of my favourites is sliced up grilled souvlaki chicken skewers on top.

TIPS FOR MAKING GREEK SALAD
Make it in advance. The great thing about this salad is that you can make lots at once and store it in your fridge for lunches throughout the week. Just be sure to keep the Greek salad dressing separate and only add it to the salad that you are consuming that day.
Double the recipe. So whenever I make this, I double or even triple the quantities of the vegetables so that I have enough leftovers to take to work for lunch the next couple of days.
How to store. Store the salad in an airtight container and store the lemon Greek salad dressing in separate dressing containers on the side.
