The Ultimate Greek Salad
This is the most delicious salad - fresh and wonderful-tasting. FYI, lettuce can very much be a part of any greek salad - if you want it to. We like lettuce in my family and I often add it. It would not be 'authentic' in a Horiatiki (village) salad, but who cares?
- Ready In:
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano (Mediterranean is best)
- 1 head lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces ((I use Romaine)
- 3 large plum tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped
- 1 English cucumber, peeled and coarsely chopped (the long, thin, almost seedless ones)
- 1 medium red onion, cut into thin rings and soaked for 10 minutes in a small bowl of ice water to make it less sharp
- 1 small green pepper, cut into thin rings
- 3⁄4 cup kalamata olive
- 3⁄4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- Whisk dressing ingredients together until blended.
- Season to taste.
- Drain onion from ice water and pat dry with paper towels.
- Combine all salad ingredients, except cheese, in large bowl.
- Toss with dressing.
- Sprinkle cheese over and serve.
MY PRIVATE NOTES

This is a delicious salad. I brought it with me to a party based on the reviews, but had forgotten to add the onions. It was still amazing and delicious! I might make it without the onions again next time. Loved it so much and everyone had some. I doubled the recipe but tripled the dressing. Everyone complimented me on the salad and said it was amazing! Kids and adults alike enjoyed it and went back for more! How many people usually go back for seconds on salad at a party when there are other choices? It was that good!
