The Original Greek Salad

Keeping up with my Summer Salads theme, I wanted to share another one of my favourites - an original style Greek salad. Did you know that a traditional Greek salad actually has no lettuce whatsoever? Well, its true! If you go to an authentic Greek restaurant and order a salad you should receive a mixture of tomato, cucumber, red onion and feta cheese - no lettuce! Being a huge fan of Greek food, I have been eating salad like this for years and I thought I should share it with you! This recipe is another one that is incredibly simple but packed with flavour and colour. 

What You Need:

1 whole tomato
1/2 a cucumber
1/2 a small red onion
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
dressing to taste ( I use this

This recipe is so easy to make, literally all you need to do is chop up your vegetables into small chunks and place them in a bowl. Add your feta cheese to the bowl and then sprinkle a little bit of dressing onto the mixture. Toss everything together and voila! 

Serve with a yummy sandwich or even some salmon and you have the perfect fresh summer meal!



  1. I love a fresh Greek salad, especially for summertime! Anything with feta, really :) Your version looks great! xo


    1. Feta is seriously my weekness, I can eat it just by itself haha.

  2. Looks so delicious! Might try this out for dinner!

  3. Mmm I make this salad all the time! So delish!
