Sailboat Galley – Greek Salad

A tossed salad made typically with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, black olives, and feta cheese and dressed with olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice, and oregano.

Greek salad is low-calorie and nutrient-dense, also providing you with a healthy dose of vitamins A and C, as well as potassium and iron. It also contains phytonutrients and antioxidants, which reduce the risk of health problems such as heart disease and cancer.

A traditional Greek salad consists of sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, green bell pepper, red onion, olives, and feta cheese. This classic combination is delicious, so I stick to it, just adding a handful of mint leaves for a fresh finishing touch.

Delicious Greek salad — the perfect accompaniment to grilled beef, pork, or chicken.

How to prepare it:

  • Make the dressing by mixing all dressing ingredients until smooth. If possible, make a few hours ahead of time and chill so that flavors can mix.  
  • Tear greens into bite sized pieces. Cut tomatoes into quarters, then each quarter in half. Peel cucumber, cut into quarters and remove seeds, then slice. Cut red onions into slivers. Seed green pepper and cut into thin strips. Place all in a bowl large enough to hold and add olives.
  • Just before serving, pour dressing over the top and toss. Sprinkle feta over the top.

If serving fewer people, dressing will last a week or longer in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
