Texture : both soft and crunchy. We love the sweetness of tomatoes, olives and feta. The crunch of cucumber and green pepper wakes up the salad.

Tasting : Greek salad can be eaten as a single dish for a very light meal. Otherwise it is served as a starter with a little bread. It can also be served with a little roast chicken, skewers, to make a more complete meal. Ideal as an accompaniment to the barbecue for example!

What ingredients should you plan for this Greek salad?

You will only need 6 ingredients for Greek salad : cucumber, cherry tomatoes (or vine tomatoes), green pepper, red onion, pitted black olives, block feta.

PS: it is a tradition in Greece to do not crumble the feta in the salad! They serve it right on top of the salad. This will keep the salad longer (this prevents the feta from soaking in the middle of the vegetables).

For dressing sauce, you will need olive oil, cider vinegar (I prefer it to other vinegars because it is better for your health), a clove of garlic, dried oregano, salt and pepper.

How to make a Greek salad?

It's really very simple! It will only take you a few minutes… Greek salad can also be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator. She keeps herself 2 days in total (to keep all the benefits of vegetables).

To prepare it, wash, cut all the vegetables and then place them in a salad bowl. Prepare the vinaigrette on the side: just mix together all the ingredients. We prepare the feta by cutting it into pieces and then sprinkle it with oregano.
