It’s crazy to admit that this is the first time I have made a Greek Salad.  I’ve loved every one I’ve ever enjoyed at a restaurant.  For me it’s the combination of fresh ingredients with big bold flavor personalities, that somehow get along really well.  No competitiveness here.  I like it!!

Greek Salad

Even though traditional Greek Salads aren’t served on a bed of lettuce, for me it’s the perfect plate if you will.  Then we top the lettuce with diced tomato and cucumber, thinly sliced red onion, kalamata olives, pepperoncini peppers, a generous topping of crumbled fresh feta cheese, dried oregano, black pepper, fresh parsley and a simple Lemon Herb Vinaigrette.

I could easily make this a meal.  But on this occasion we served it as a side to our newest whole roasted chicken recipe.  Check out our Greek Whole Roasted Chicken.  Is that not one handsome bird?!!
