We love Greek food at our house. If you are familiar with the blog, then I am sure you have seen my recipes for Greek food! I have a yummy Greek Chicken or Greek Chicken Kabob recipe that has a delicious light marinade with fresh squeezed lemon juice, ground oregano, pepper and garlic. Yellow Lime Rice with fresh squeezed lemons makes the perfect accompaniment to my Greek Chicken. And it wouldn’t be a Greek meal without some Fresh Tzatziki Cucumber Sauce and Pita Pocket Bread or fresh Homemade Naan Bread. This Easy Greek Salad is the perfect salad to go along with a Greek inspired meal and the Greek Vinaigrette does not disappoint!

Greek Vinaigrette Dressing

Easy Greek Salad with Greek Vinaigrette Dressing is one of my favorite salads. It is loaded with fresh ingredients, but the best part of the salad is the vinaigrette dressing. It has the perfect blend of flavors. I bet you have all of the ingredients right in your pantry!

You will need some apple cider vinegar, olive oil, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, ground oregano (NOT dried oregano leaves), dried basil leaves (the dried kind on the spice aisle), kosher salt/sea salt, and black pepper.

Just a quick note on the Ground Oregano! DO NOT USE OREGANO LEAVES. It has to be Ground Oregano. Ground Oregano will have much more flavor, which you want in Greek Food. Dried Oregano leaves are great in some things, but for this dressing use Ground Oregano, you will thank me, I promise!

Just mix all the ingredients together! Easy Peasy!

This salad dressing does have a lot flavor to it, so I like to let people add the dressing to their own salad.

What to put in your Easy Greek Salad

I love Romaine Lettuce for any salad. It has a crisp taste that is perfect for this salad, I also like to add some chopped iceberg lettuce also. It adds a bit more crunch and texture along with the Romaine lettuce.

I love to add to my Easy Greek Salad sliced/chopped red onions, cherry tomatoes (halved), and sliced cucumbers. These are pretty standard in Greek Salads. Whole black olives are a must! A little side note: make sure the olives you use are pitted- nobody has time for that!

My favorite addition to my Easy Greek Salad is Feta Cheese! I LOVE Feta Cheese. I can eat Feta Cheese by the spoonfuls. It is soft and savory, and perfect for this salad! DO NOT FORGET THE FETA CHEESE!
