Greek Salad – The Answer to every question.

This Greek Salad is hands down the salad we make most often throughout the year. We discovered it during Greek Month and have been making it ever since. It’s easy, it’s aromatic, the fresh vegetables combine together for a smell so amazing, you won’t be able to wait to eat it, and its delicious! The light and fresh taste complimented the Shawarma so perfectly.

The Ingredients

Greek Salad Ingredients

The full recipe is detailed below, but for this particular meal I divided it in half for the two of us.

I used:

  • 1 cucumber peeled and chopped into quarter 1/4 moons
  • 1/4 red onion sliced
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • black olives pitted and sliced to taste

The olive oil we received as a free sample from Pinch Me. This is a website where you can receive free samples of hundreds of products, we have discovered so many new favorites through Pinch Me.

The feta is from Costco. We love feta, so we buy LARGE tubs. I have read buying blocks and crumbling yourself is better, we just haven’t taken that step yet.

The rest of the ingredients are all from Aldi. If you live near Aldi, check them out. They have a wonderful selection.

I also had green onions so I tossed one in. Did you know you can re-grow them? I like to preserve them by drying them in the oven.

Instead of black olives (we aren’t fans) we had Kalamata olives (the purple ones) so I threw those in instead. If you have chick peas, they provide a nice texture difference. I add about half a cup, but that would be up to you.

Had to show my adorable curtains too.
