Greek Salad

Print Friendly and PDF

It's summertime here and one of the pleasures of life is to sit down with a Greek salad (Horiatiki), dunking your bread in the olive oil and drinking a light beer or whatever your fancy is for a cold drink. We realised that we hadn't included Greek salad in the blog, so here it is. It's very simple and I'm sure a lot of you already know it.

The ingredients are:

Tomatoes (3 medium)
Cucumber (1)
Green Pepper (2)
Feta Cheese (150g)
Greek olives (15)
Raw onion (optional)
Olive oil

The amounts of each ingredient really depend on the size. Above, I have included in brackets the amount that we used for the photo you see.

The salad is very easily prepared, chopping the tomatoes to a medium size, slicing the cucumber and the green pepper. Throw them in a salad bowl and slice some raw onion if you wish. Crumble the feta cheese on top, lightly sprinkle oregano on top along with salt to taste and finally pour as much olive oil as you wish on top.

If you've tried this recipe please rate it!

Eat and Enjoy!

This is my favorite salad. I am Greek-Cypriot and this salad is an every day dish in our home. Delicious!!

It looks delicious, but I think it would be even better with a sprinkle of lemon juice or red wine vinegar along with the olive oil. Would that make it non-greek?

That would be fine, Patricia :) People often add vinegar, but not really lemon juice. It's a simple but delicious salad and dipping your fresh bread into it just makes it even better!

My girls father is of Greek heritage. There's not a month goes by without a Greek style roast lamb with roast potatoes and Greek salad. His differs from yours slightly, in that he uses lemon juice & olive oil, but no oregano. (The oregano is over the lamb). Also, he is incredibly particular about his fetta, and only uses Dodoni
