Easy Greek Salad Recipe
What ingredients are in a Greek salad?
1-pint cherry tomatoes cut in half
1 cucumber sliced longways then sliced into ¼ inch wide pieces
¼ red onion, cut in half then sliced thin
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon oregano fresh remove leaves from spring and chopped
1 ripe avocado, cut into cubes.
Salt and pepper to taste
4 oz crumbled herb feta
6 Kalamata olives cut in half
How to make a Greek salad recipe?
Remove oregano from the stem then chop it into small pieces. Set aside.
Thinly slice the red onion and cut in quarter slices to make small strips. This makes the slices more edible in size. Set aside.
Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and set them aside. If they are large, cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters.
Cut the ends of the cucumbers. First, cut it longways, then slice the cucumbers in about ¼ to ½ inch pieces. Set aside.
Add the red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper, and chopped oregano and whisk together in a larger bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add tomatoes, onions, cucumber, and toss with the dressing.
Add the kalamata olives to the bowl. Toss.
Then, add the herbed feta, and toss lightly.
Cut the avocado into cubes. Add the cubed avocado and toss lightly. Note: a just-ripe avocado will stay together more than an avocado that has been ripened for a while.
Refrigerate for 2 hours or so.
That's it! And, here's the single-serving size. Doesn't it look delicious? Feel free to add a protein like a grilled chicken dish. Below are some grilled chicken recipes from our blog.
