This recipe for fresh Greek salad might not be a long one, but it sure is a good one!
Simple, quick and delicious, the Greek salad is a staple of Greek cuisine! The traditional salad actually includes olives as a star addition, however, as I am allergic they have been left out of this recipe. Feel free to add some olives into the mix to make your salad as authentic as possible!
This Greek salad recipe is super adaptable and can be paired with a range of other delicious meals as a refreshing side dish! We paired our salad with a delicious Greek lasagna, but it can also be paired with lamb, fish or chicken dishes, and also would make a colourful addition to a summer barbeque!
Our Cooking Class Experience
Ben and I had the BEST time at our Greek cooking class with CookInAthens! Our teacher Marilena was amazing and had so much knowledge about Greek cuisine and its history. She was incredibly welcoming and friendly and made us feel completely at ease in her kitchen!
We warned Marilena in advance that I was allergic to mushrooms and olives and she adapted this salad to fit my needs. Thankfully, no mushrooms were harmed in the making of our Greek dishes – so I was safe there!
However, the Mediterranean is NOT my friend when it comes to finding dishes and meals that won’t give me an allergic reaction – mushrooms and olives are EVERYWHERE!
Short and sweet, I hope you enjoy this recipe for fresh Greek salad!
Let me know of any additions or substitutions you make – I’d love to live vicariously through you should you choose to include olives!
