The ingredients

Like most of our favorite salads, this Greek salad recipe only requires simple, fresh ingredients. Here is the list, the full recipe is in the recipe area below.

Cucumbers – Use fresh and crispy cucumbers. If the skins are on the thicker side, consider peeling some or all of it. You can use almost any cucumber for this salad. In the photos and video, we have used a greenhouse cucumber, which has thin skin and very few seeds.

Tomatoes – Like cucumbers, you can use any type of fresh tomato that you have access to. Simply cut them or cut them into small pieces.

Onion – We like to use red or sweet onion for the Greek salad. If you are sensitive to raw onion bites, follow our tips in the recipe and the video for pitting onions. By adding the sliced ​​onions to a cold water bath for a few minutes, draining and rinsing them, they are a little less fiery, but still have all the crunch and sweetness of the raw onion.

Olives – In an authentic Greek salad, you will likely see added Kalamata olives with the pits still inside. If you are concerned about someone biting into an olive pit, feel free to use pitted olives.

Feta cheese – It's the cheese that really ties this salad to me. I love adding large chunks of feta cheese to the salad and trying to buy the best feta cheese I can find (always sold in blocks, not chunks).

Pepper – Although we do not add them in the photographed salad, green peppers are quite common in the Greek salad, so if you have them, cut them and add them.

Oregano, salt, pepper, olive oil and vinegar – We did not previously prepare a dressing for this easy Greek salad and instead we add everything to taste just before serving. You can even do this directly on the table. The only thing I add ahead of time are the dry seasonings (salt, pepper, and oregano). By seasoning the vegetables at least 5 minutes before serving, they begin to release their own tasty juices, which eventually mix with the vinegar and olive oil when added. For a different twist, take a look at our Greek salad with creamy yogurt dressing.

Will need

Addresses

    Optional: Dehumidify sliced ​​onions, then add to a bowl filled with cold water. Set aside for 10 minutes, drain, and then rinse. This attenuates the raw bite of the onions, while keeping them crisp.

    Combine the tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, bell pepper, olives, oregano, 1/4 teaspoon of fine sea salt, and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper in a large salad bowl. Mix well and then set aside for five minutes.

    Mix the salad once more and drizzle over the red wine vinegar and olive oil. Put the feta cheese on top of the salad, add an extra pinch of oregano on top and serve.
