You CAN make friends with salad and this deliciously simple Greek Salad is a great friend to have! I add lettuce which isn’t traditional but it’s good, trust me.
Whilst I love trying new recipes, there are a few recipes that I find myself always coming back to and this simple Greek salad right here is one of them! I almost always have the ingredients on hand, and I love how it comes together in about 5 minutes, which happens to make it my easiest recipe. Perfect for those nights where you just could not be bothered thinking about dinner!
I make my Greek Salad with lettuce, which isn’t traditional, but you are an adult and can do whatever you damn well please, so if you want to throw some lettuce in there I’m on board. I think it fills out the salad a little more and gives you a serve of leafy greens which is never a bad thing. I’d also recommend investing in a good olive oil here. Not the cheapest bottle at the supermarket because it was on sale. You can taste the difference and a great oil here will be one of the heroes of the salad.
I eat this salad as a meal by itself but if you want to use as a side salad to accompany some protein I’d say this would be the perfect amount to be shared between two people. You can also easily double or triple the recipe to feed a crowd.
