Greek Salad


The recipe I’m sharing with you today is just another version of the popular Greek salad. This is not a recipe for authentic Greek Salad.

I make this salad very often and I love the combination of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and greek dressing. Lettuce also created a nice texture. The different colored vegetables go very well together. By the way Greek salad dressing is one of my favorites.

You can have this salad as a light meal, but I personally prefer it as a side salad, since there is no meat in it.

I don’t think authentic Greek salad is supposed to have any lettuce in it, but I did use chopped Artisan lettuce, for extra crispiness. It made the salad very light and fresh.

Capers are optional, but Kalamata olives are recommended, if you like them.

For my greek salad dressing I used olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
