This Greek salad is a must try! It is one of the healthiest salads around; chock-full of fresh, raw veggies and served with a healthy (and super easy) zesty lemon dressing. So delicious and guilt free!
I could eat this all day and not get tired of it. It kind of reminds me of the Olive Garden salad but it’s 100x better! You’ll be making it again and again. Seriously folks, go to the grocery store soon. ?
Greek Salad Ingredients:
1 head romaine lettuce, washed, chopped and completely dried
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
1/2 red, orange or yellow bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved (or slice heirlooms when in season)
1 medium cucumber, diced
1 avocado, cubed
1/2 cup kalamata olives (about 20 olives), sliced into thirds, optional
1 oz feta cheese, or to taste
Zesty Greek Dressing:
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin olive oil
Juice from 1 lemon, freshly squeezed (about 2 1/2 Tbsp)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
Pinch of Black pepper
- Step 1
To keep lettuce crisp: rinse your romaine lettuce in cold water, then use a salad spinner to dry completely. Refrigerate until ready to use. Note: if you refrigerate salad that is wet, it will get mushy.
- Step 2
Place your chopped and dried romaine in a large salad bowl along with sliced red onion, sliced bell peppers, halved tomatoes, diced cucumber, diced avocado and kalamata olives if using.
- Step 3
Just before serving, add the dressing and sprinkle with feta. Toss the salad to combine and serve right away.
