I call it “My Famous Greek Salad” because, if you know me at all, you know I’m ALWAYS eating it. It’s my favorite go-to easy recipe. I’ve been asked so many times for this recipe so FINALLY it’s here 😊

This is not the traditional Greek salad AKA “Horiatiki” because there is lettuce. Fun fact: Greek salads in Greece don’t actually have lettuce in them! When I go to Greece I literally eat Horiatiki every single day I’m there 😍👅 It’s amazing. But when I’m in the states, this is my everyday salad… and I’m not kidding I eat it almost everyday. I never measure any of the ingredients, I just freehand it and taste test to see what it needs more of. You really can’t go wrong. Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Tomatoes
  • Green Onions
  • Red Pepper (optional)
  • Feta Cheese
  • Greek Olives (optional)
  • Olive Oil
  • Pompeian Red Wine Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Oregano
  • Garlic Powder (optional)

-Wash and cut: 1 head of Romaine lettuce, 2 tomatoes, 6-8 green onions, 1/2 red pepper, and 1-2 peeled cucumber. Add to bowl.

-Mix in feta cheese.

-Add Olive Oil and Pompeian Red Wine Vinegar and mix. If too Olive Oily, add more vinegar; if too vinegar-y add more Olive Oil. To your taste.

-Add salt, pepper, oregano, and a dash of garlic powder to taste.

*The biggest secret is to mix REALLY WELL. I’ve noticed that the more you mix the tastier it is.

-Add Kalamata Olives. Enjoy!

*Serves 3-4 people. (Or if you’re like me serves 1 😜)

This is literally the easiest salad to make and you can’t really mess it up. Just taste it after you mix and see if it needs more of anything. Also, I’ve tried a lot of red wine vinegars in my Greek salad and ‘Pompeian’ is noticeably the best. The dressing or “juice” at the end is the best part! Dip your French bread in it and definitely don’t let it go to waste! Ugh this post is making me crave Greek salad!!! I think I’m going to go make some now… okay bye &Happy Greek salad making! xo
