Amazing will definitely double the dressing to keep for another day. I’m so glad I forgot to buy ready made and used my fresh herbs I have growing. Yummy
I’m so glad you liked it Gail!
The best Greek salad ever!!!!!
The taste, flavour, and everything else!
Elise Bauer, you’re the future world’s best chef
Thank you PRMS, I’m so glad you liked it!
Fantastic salad! except your mom’s tip .”to take some of the bite away from the onions, after you chop them, soak them in a little vinegar or lemon juice.”
i thought the reason for using the onions was because of that bite. Why else use them ?
Well, for the looks I guess, they are beautiful!!!
Hi Marko, freshly cut raw onions can have a stronger taste than you might want. So, a way to take the edge off those onions is to soak them in a little acidic liquid, or even water. You get the flavor of the onions that way but with less of what might give you onion breath.
Marvellous, will make it for every party !
It was a huge hit with the family; even my sister did pick out the tomatoes! I put the olives on the side for those that weren’t fans and all dug in. Bowl empty.
Great Greek Salad recipe which reminds me of the salads we had in Greece. Many “make believe” Greek salads come with lettuce of some sort as filler. That’s not the way they make them there. Glad to have found this one!
Loved your recipe for this Greek Salad. I used fresh oregano and dill, grape tomatoes cut in half because you don’t have to remove the seeds and of course lovely Kalamata olives. Yummy !
Loved it! Quick and easy to make. I made it with out the olives, I wish I had some Kalamata olives to add, but the rest of my house doesn’t like olives and it was loved by all.
Awesome and will make again
LOVE! I used orange bell pepper because I didn’t have green, but still tasted great! The thing that was weird was when I refrigerated it the oil congealed, but I just let it sit out to get to room temp and that fixed it. Easy and So good!!!
Thank you for a wonderful recipe. My mother was Greek and for a couple of years I’ve made it for a large gathering Christmas dinner in her memory. No matter how much I make it seems to always disappear. I love the Dill in the recipe and use English cucumbers and Kalamata olives.
Best Greek Salad ever… easy recipe to follow and the ingredients are in the cupboard… I did replace the red wine vinegar with Maille’s “Wine Vinegar with Raspberry Juice” …. superbe
I’m so glad you liked it Louise!
Best Greek salad I have ever had. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I used a bit less red onion. A little tip, I used low salt olives and added very little salt as the feta cheese provides the needed saltiness. Also, the fresh dill is a very nice and uncommon (?) touch.
I’m so glad you liked it Robert!
Great salad! A keeper. Do you have any nutritional information for it (calories, etc)? Thanks!
Hi Val, I’m so glad you liked it! I do not analyze nutritional information, but I’m sure you can find some online resources that can help you figure it out.
Val, like you, I am watching my calories, if you found the answer please post how many calories you think a serving of this would be.
I’d recommend plugging the ingredients into a nutrition calculator to determine the calories per serving. The one I use most often is My Fitness Pal: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator
Well, it’s the second week of January and I just made this for lunch….how delightful! It was like a taste of summer. My taste buds are so happy right now. I did serve this on a couple of leaves of Romaine lettuce. I refrigerated half of the dressing to make a fresh plate for my DH this evening. Thank you for sharing such a scrumptious recipe!
I just made this as a side for dinner. The only change I made were the tomatoes. Grape tomatoes were on sale so I quartered them and used the entire container. I also do not care for black olives, so I left them out.
I seriously think that I could eat the entire bowl. So So delish!!!
I’m so glad you liked it Debbie!
Was wondering if you use dried or fresh herbs? Cheers
Hello Janine, great question. You could use either. I’ve updated the recipe ingredients to reflect that, thank you.
I don’t know why I ever use recipes from anywhere else. Your are always the best. This rocked, as usual.
Why thank you Zchamu!
I’d like to ask you that if I didn’t add the red wine vinegar would it taste different or there is a substitution for it ?.
Yes it would taste different. You could use cider vinegar, white wine vinegar, or even diluted lemon juice. They would all taste a little different. ~Elise
We made this last night and it was wonderful. Thanks for the tip about the red onions. I used some lemon juice to soak the onions and they were sweet with just the right amount of bite. Nice summer dinner.
