This salad was absolutely delightful. Loved the fried feta cheese -- it really made the salad. Loved the other ingredients as well and the vinaigrette was really flavorful. Will be making this dish again - definitely Company-worthy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together 3 tbsp olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, sugar, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Divide and arrange the tomatoes, onion, arugula, and olives on four plates.
  3. Cut the feta cheese into 1" cubes. Beat egg in a small bowl and put the flour on a plate. Toss the cheese into the egg and shake off excess. Toss the egg coated cheese in the flour on the plate.
  4. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet. Add the cheese and fry over medium heat, turning until all sides are golden brown.
  5. Scatter the fried feta over the salad. Whisk the dressing again and spoon over the salad. Serve while the feta cheese is still warm.
