The Best Greek Salad Recipe

Updated: Feb 28


Greek Salad Recipe

I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for healthy, simple meals to feed my family. We have had an unseasonably warm winter this year. It’s been incredible!


Our Minnesota winters don’t usually allow for grilling, but here we are making delicious meals we normally only get to enjoy in the warmer months. This has led me to make other side dishes that make us all dream of summer. 


Our family has always loved a good salad. I realize this is rare, but we can all agree on a good salad. I think it’s probably from years of growing our own vegetables in the garden.


We are huge fans of Caesar salad, but tonight, I’m switching it up and making a Greek salad. So, I thought I’d give you a recipe and you can try it too. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be overly complicated. Sometimes, I make it too hard and don’t get excited about it. I’ve learned that if I stick to simple ingredient recipes, I cook much more for my family.

 

Greek Salad Recipe

 

Ingredients:

  • Greens of any kind (I used an organic baby spinach mix)

  • Cherry Tomatoes

  • Cucumbers

  • Feta cheese crumbles

  • Kalamata Olives

  • Red Onion (We don’t care for raw onion, so I leave these out)

  • Protein of your choice (I cut up smoked turkey)

The best part of any salad is adding as much, as little, or omitting any ingredient. So, add or remove whatever you want to make this salad your own!

 

Dressing:

Most of the time, I’ll sprinkle some salt, pepper, olive oil and a splash of apple cider vinegar. This is probably the healthiest way to do it. But if you’re short on time, Newman’s Own has an outstanding olive oil and vinegar dressing, and Olive Garden’s Italian dressing does the trick, too!


If you bring this salad to a gathering, I’d add the dressing right before you eat. That will keep the greens from getting soggy.

 

Whether you love to be creative in the kitchen or try to do your best like me, this salad is a crowd favorite! A little bit goes a long way and you know you’re feeding your family well!

 

Until next time,
