A good greek salad has to have feta cheese, it also has to have a green element, so whatever kind of lettuce you prefer is fine. It has to have black kalamata olives and a red component. Anything else is an added bonus.
In this greek salad, I chose to use roasted red peppers because that is what I had on hand. Most traditional Greek salads will have tomatoes in it, that is also good.
I like a bit of red onion in my salad for flavor and color, but my husband does not, so I left them out.
I will share the ingredients below for the salad in the picture, however, your imagination is the limit here.
The rule of thumb for knowing how much salad per person is a fist full of green for each person. If you are someone who measures, a cup per person is the perfect measure for a side salad.
Spring Mix with Spinach
Roasted Red Peppers
Black Kalamata Olives
Serve with a greek salad dressing.
Add in grilled chicken breast or shrimp and it will be wonderful.
