Greek Salad


Cooking with One Chef One Critic

I learned several years ago from someone of Greek ancestry that a Greek salad containing lettuce is not considered authentic. This recipe, created loosely from a description given me, contains no lettuce. It may not be the same as a Greek grandma would make, but it is tasty.

  • Yield: 6 Servings


  • ½ lb (227 g) feta, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 English cucumber, cubed
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 20 kalamata olives, pitted
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 3 tbsp (30 mL) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
How to Make It
  1. Toss all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Place in refrigerator for several hours to marinate.
