This is the amazing Greek salad recipe that I could practically live on (especially while pregnant). I made this recipe because I disliked Greek salads in restaurants that had such big chunks of veggies that you could never fit more than one piece in your mouth at a time. I love all the flavors mixed together!

Stephanie’s Greek Salad
Recipe Type: Side Dish
(The amounts are all approximate, as I just do it by feel and add however much looks right to me.)
Ingredients
  • For the Salad:
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 3-4 tomatoes (this totally depends on the type- Roma, small or large, etc.)
  • 1/4 large red onion (maybe 1/2 a small one?)
  • 1-2 red peppers (again, depending how big they are)
  • Pitted green (Kalamata are great) deli olives (fresh, not canned!), chopped into smaller pieces
  • Feta cheese – as much as it takes to mix it well throughout the salad, without scrimping
  • For the Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup [url href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JTX7VKG/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00JTX7VKG&linkCode=as2&tag=keeofthehom-20&linkId=4BN7GWTNUNLCLSWW” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”]olive oil[/url]

  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
Instructions
  1. Dice all veggies. I like mine in about 1 inch cubes- it’s a nice size. For the dressing, put all ingredients in a glass jar, then shake, shake, shake. Pour over the salad, add the olives and feta cheese, and mix well.
