Greek Salad with Feta
There are some recipes I just make and don’t even think if I’ve shared it on this site, but the other day I posted my Grilled Greek Chicken and was asked what kind of salad was on top that I plated it with.
So here it is, my Greek Salad with Feta.
What’s in a Greek Salad?
Typically the trio is cucumbers, tomatoes and olives in a dressing. I like to use either English hot house cucumbers or Persian cucumber as they seem to be a little more compact with less water. I choose sliced teardrop tomatoes, but round or diced Roma work well, too.
As for the olives, I love having a colorful variety with different sizes and colors. We eat with our eyes first, right? Crumbled feta goes on top and it all gets mixed with in an herb infused, lemon dressing.
Are cucumbers a fruit?
Cucumbers are usually considered a vegetable because of how it’s used in the culinary world. However, as it grows from flowers and contains seeds, it’s botanically a fruit.
What to serve this with?
This is great as it is on it’s own, served with pita chips to scoop, or grilled fish.
