Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Cucumbers Peeled and diced
  • 1 Cup Cherry Tomatoes Roma or grape will also work. Choose what is best looking at the store.
  • ½ Cup Green Bell Pepper About Half of a large pepper.
  • ¼ Cup Red onion Thinly sliced. About ¼ of a large red onion
  • ½ Cup Pitted Kalamata Olives
  • ½ Cup Feta Cheese Crumbled

Dressing Ingredients

  • ¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ¼ Cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • ½ Tsp Pepper
  • ½ Tsp Oregano
  • 1 Tsp Granulated Garlic
  • 1 Tsp Granulated Onion

Instructions

Dressing Instructions

  • Combine the olive oil, red wine vinegar, fresh lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a small mixing bowl and stir.

Greek Salad Instructions

  • Wash tomatoes, cucumber, and green bell pepper by rinsing under cool water. Rub them gently as you rinse to remove any dirt and pat dry on a paper towel or clean dish towel.
  • Cut cucumbers into thin half-moon pieces.
  • Cut grape tomatoes in half.
  • Remove the seeds and ribs from the green bell pepper and slice into thin strips.
  • Peel onion and cut into very thin half circles.
  • Place the tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and onions into a mixing bowl.
  • Add crumbled cheese, drained olives, and dressing. Toss the salad until everything has a nice even coating of Homemade Greek Dressing.
  • Place in the refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes.

Notes

  • Let salad marinate in the dressing for at least 15 minutes before serving. 
  • Store Traditional Greek Salad in a sealed container in the refrigerator for  up to 3 days.
  • Cut the onion slices as thin as you can manage so that they soften in the dressing and distribute evenly throughout the salad.
