| It Tastes Amazing
I don't know what it is but I've always love greek salad. I think it just the wonderful combination of the greek vinaigrette dressing tossed with fresh veggies, cheese, and olives. I think some of the sweet crispiness of the veggies offsets the tanginess of the dressing and feta. Finish it off with kosher salt and pepper and it's so yummy.

How To Make The Best Greek Salad
This really is a simple salad to toss together! Here's how to make it:
How to Make the Greek Dressing
Toss olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, oregano, dill, salt, and pepper into a small bowl and mix together. The dressing can be made ahead of time or used immediately.
Assemble the Salad
Add bell pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, olives, and cheese to a large bowl.
Mix the Salad
Pour salad dressing over the top and mix ingredients. If needed, salt and pepper to taste. Dig in!
- I like using roma tomatoes because they aren't as juicy as other types. They help keep the salad from becoming too runny as it sits.
- You don't have to take the seeds out of the cucumber, but I do it to keep the salad from being too runny.
- If you have time, you can make the dressing in advance and allow the flavors to blend. This dressing is also really good as a marinade or a simple salad dressing for a basic green salad. Yum.
- If the salad is too vinegary or tangy for your taste add a pinch of sugar or two. Add a little at a time. You can't take it out once it's in! For keto followers, make sure to use an Erythritol or other keto-friendly sugar substitutes.
