This has got to be my favorite recipe for a salad! Other than the Greek Salad I got in an Italian restaurant in Moscow, Russia, this salad is the most flavorful. The only standard ingredients of a Classic greek Salad are the olives and the Feta Cheese. All the rest can be varied according to taste. try substituting 1 small head romaine lettuce for the iceberg and endive (I do and love it!). For a Mediterranean-style salad, substitute 1 large can tuna in water, drained and flaked, for the Feta Cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Note: Because it is stored in brine, feta cheese can sometimes be quite salty. To reduce the saltyness, rinse the cheese in a colander under cold water, and pat dry before you crumble it.
  2. Combine lettuce, endive, green pepper, tomato, onion, and cheese in a large mixing bowl. Place on a large platter. Garnish with olives and green onion; arrange cucumber slices around outer edge of platter. Refrigerate.
  3. For the Dressing:.
  4. Combine the olive oil, vinegar, oregano, salt, and pepper in a jar. Cover tightly and shake well.
  5. Pour dressing over the salad just before serving.
