Traditional Greek Salad with Greek Vinaigrette

This traditional Greek salad of crisp lettuce, sweet tomato and cucumber, briny olives, salty feta cheese, and lemony Greek vinaigrette is an upstate NY favorite.

Anyone who dined in a Greek restaurant in upstate NY during the 1980?s and 90?s will recognize this refreshing salad. Crunchy greens, salad veggies, briny olives, and salty cheese dressed with a tangy dressing, this will always be my standard for Greek salad.
We eat a lot of salads in the summer. While popular salads like the Cobb, Taco Salad, or Chicken Caesar feature regularly on our menu, this traditional Greek salad recipe is one of our favorites. The simple ingredients make it a great accompaniment to marinated and/or grilled meats.

How to Make Greek Salad Start with crisp iceberg lettuce (or romaine) and tear or chop into into bite-sized pieces. Layer the lettuce with fresh tomato, cucumber, red onion, Greek olives, pepperoncini peppers, and feta cheese. Toss with a simple homemade Greek vinaigrette dressing.
