Our best Greek salad recipes - 4 recipes

Recipes for Greek salad tend to vary, but are unfortunately seldom authentic. Having grown up in Greece, I can promise you a real, traditional recipe for Greek salad! This delicious vegetarian salad can be eaten as a refreshing, light main dish on a hot summer day, or as a side with grilled fish or roast chicken. The key is to use the freshest of vegetables, a very high quality extra-virgin olive oil, and real Greek feta cheese. Tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers and red onions are all you need, plus the oil and feta. You can also add some green or black olives on top if you like, along with a sprinkling of dried oregano. And don't forget to dip crusty fresh bread into the dressing that's left at the bottom of the plate - this is my absolute favorite part of eating a Greek salad, and if you've never done that, then you don’t know what you’re missing!
