This Greek salad recipe is a simple, fresh, tangy and delicious way to eat your veggies. And it tastes just like the Greek salad from Zoe’s Kitchen!
You can make this Greek salad for one, which I do often.
Or you can make it for a crowd.
Greek salad is so great with a side of grilled chicken, hummus and pita bread…or a side of pizza. 😉👊🏻 Just sayin’! This isn’t meant to be a meal in itself. Pair it with whatever tickles your fancy.
Those veggies, though…MMMM!
What ingredients go in Greek Salad?
I used tomatoes, cucumbers, red (um, purple?) onion, kalamata olives, and a bell pepper ring right on top. Definitely a winning combination.
Sprinkle it with a little feta…
I will say that a little feta goes a long way in the flavor sense. But I admit some days I want more feta. My recipe amounts are merely suggestions, people! Just add how much sounds good to you that day. 😆👍🏻
The top it off with my tangy Greek red wine vinaigrette .
Side note: this Greek red wine vinaigrette dressing has become one of my most popular recipes. I am glad y’all are loving it!🙌🏻
I love it too. I makes me want to eat all the salad.😆 It tastes a whole lot like the stuff from Zoe’s Kitchen.And it is made with simple ingredients.
In fact, this entire Greek salad recipe was inspired by the Greek salad at Zoe’s. I craved it when I was pregnant with both of my kids. Well, okay…fine! I crave it regardless. 😆 But the level of craving was turned up a few notches when I was pregnant. It certainly doesn’t hurt to know how to make one of these for myself! 😉
If you really want to take it to the next level, add some caramelized onion. 😍
In all honesty, I do not always take the time to do this step. But it is what gives this salad that Zoe’s feel.
It takes a little extra work and patience. But! You won’t be sorry. And if you want to be semi-lazy like me and leave it off sometimes, that’s fine too. 😎

I HAVE BEEN MAKING BONELESS CHICKEN BREASTS FOR MANY YEARS ( I AM 82) AND HAVE NEVER EVER HAD BETTER AND JUCIER RESULTS.I ONLY MADE ONE TODAY AS A TEST AND EVEN MADE ITIN MY TOASTER OVEN BECAUSE IT WAS ONLY ONE.
TOMORROW I WILL MAKE MORE IN THE OVEN .
THIS IS REALLY FABULOUS. THE GREEK SALAD DRESSING (ZOE’S KITCHEN) WILL SURELY BE A HIT AS WELL.
MY HUSBAND IS ON A LOW SODIUM DIET SO I LEAVE OUT THE SALT AND OLIVES FOR HIMAND JUST USE A SPRINKLE OF FETA ON IT.
A MILLION THANKS
