Greek Salad

Greek Salad w Roasted Red Peppers


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
  • English Cucumber
  • Carrots

Serve with a greek salad dressing.

Add in grilled chicken breast or shrimp and it will be wonderful.


  1. Always start with clean dry lettuce
  2. Place all ingredients in a bowl and toss with the dressing just before serving
