Greek Salad Recipe – Step by Step Guide

One of the things that I appreciate most about this Greek salad recipe is that it is loaded with vegetables but does not include any leafy greens. Because of this, it is possible to prepare all of the components in advance (as I demonstrated in my summer meal preparation), and then combine them all together when you are ready to serve the dish. It goes without saying that this salad recipe is the ideal summer salad, and it is one that is frequently used.

How to make Greek salad

  • To a large mixing bowl, add the olives, feta cheese, cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper, and onion. Also include the bell pepper. Put the vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper into a separate, smaller mixing bowl. Mix well.
  • Until the dressing is completely emulsified, gradually add the olive oil while vigorously whisking it constantly while pouring it. Apply the dressing to the salad, then give it a light stir to combine the ingredients. In the event that you so desire, season with additional salt and pepper.

Storing Greek Salad

You can store any leftover Greek salad in a container that is covered for up to four days. In order to make it look as good as new, you should add some fresh vegetables and a sprinkle of feta cheese.
