An authentic greek feta salad is a medley of fresh cucumber, ripe cherry tomatoes, tangy red onion, briny Kalamata olives and creamy feta cheese (note that I omitted lettuce from the ingredients list as it is not traditionally in a Greek salad).
The bold Greek flavors come together over crisp vegetables and a homemade vinaigrette dressing. It’s a zippy and refreshing salad that packs a lot of flavor and is the perfect companion to Mediterranean dishes, pita sandwiches and flatbread pizzas.
How To Make Authentic Greek Feta Salad
A bowl of feta salad is crispy, crunchy, fresh and delicious. To build unmistakably Greek flavors into the salad, I rely on a homemade vinaigrette made from spices, oil, vinegar and lemon. It’s a versatile dressing that can be used beyond this salad and drizzled on flatbread, sandwiches and as a marinade.
Once the dressing is made, the hardest part is already done. Next, simply chop the ingredients into small bite sized pieces and toss in the vinaigrette dressing.
For the finishing touch, top with evenly cut cubes of vegan feta (I use Violife, which is beautifully smooth). The feta cheese gives a creamy and salty component that prevents the vinegary and briny flavors from becoming too aggressive.
This Greek feta salad is one of the most delicious salads you can make. It’s got bold Greek flavors, plenty of fresh ingredients and a creamy, cool finish. Try making it as a side or as a light lunch. As always, let me know if you make this salad in the comments below!
