BEST GREEK SALAD
Many healthy salads are lovely to look at and full of nutrients. Mostly I used to sprout, spinach, microgreen, and other healthy green ingredients in my salad recipes. But if we talk about a quick and simple salad full of flavors no one can beat Greek Salad.
In this salad, there is no use of green leaves. It is all about veggies so you can make it easily without any issues of sageness.
To save time for another recipe you can cut and sliced the veggies in the same shape. If you want to make your meal in a short tie must watch my video How I make it.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN A GREEK SALAD?
All the ingredients for the greek Salad recipe are listed below.
- Feta Cheese
- Olives – Green/Black
- Red Onion
- Bell Paper
In Greek salad, you see mostly the time tomatoes are used in large cutting shapes but if use cherry and grapes tomatoes it will make your recipe easy. The Feta cheese combo in the salad is just perfect but don’t buy old-block feta cheese. I will recommend you buy a fresh block of feta cheese for salad because old feta has anti–cakingadditives.
Put all the ingredients on your kitchen shelf. It is easy to cut all veggies in the same size or shape instead of different shapes. Finely diced slice of veggies is better than large size of veggies. Once you cut all veggies then pour the greek salad dressing on it and mix it well.
