A Greek salad is something you can find at most diners, and definitely any Greek restaurant. The interesting thing is that a Greek salad is almost identical to the salads they actually serve in Greece, so it’s nice to know that you’re making and eating something pretty authentic.

A Greek salad is super easy to put together, has a ton of fresh ingredients, and can easily be bulked up if you add a protein source like chicken, salmon, or chickpeas. No one can say no to this at a dinner party, so let’s get started.


  1. Start off by mixing the salad dressing together. This involves combining 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice with 6 tablespoons of good quality olive oil. Mix this together until it combines to make your vinaigrette, and then add in salt and pepper to taste, and a good 2 teaspoons or more of dried oregano for that signature Greek flare.
  2. Thinly slice half a red onion and add that to a large bowl.
  3. Slice up a cucumber, half of a red and green bell pepper each, and a few fresh tomatoes.
  4. Cut a head of romaine lettuce in half, and then roughly chop that and add it to the bowl as well.
  5. Pour in cubes of feta cheese and black or kalamata olives, and finally finish with a toss and the addition of the salad dressing.
