Greek Style Salad

A Greek style salad with tomatoes, cucumber, onion, olives, feta and Greek dressing.

Greek Salad

CookingAddic With spring here I have been thinking about salads more often and one of my favourites is a Greek style salad! A Greek salad is nice and simple containing tomatoes, cucumbers, kalamata olives, feta, onions, and a vibrant dressing. I really like the way the juiciness of the tomatoes and cucumers balance the saltiness of the olives and feta and the red onions provide a sweet and spicy counterpoint. The dressing for this salad is also pretty easy containing olive oil, lemon juice and oregano and the lemony vinaigrette really brightens the salad up. 


This simple Greek style dressing is so fresh, simple and tasty!
