One of my favorite salads is a Greek salad. With so many fresh vegetables, this Mediterranean salad it can be a delightful side dish or a hearty main dish meal.

Traditionally, a Greek salad is made with vegetables only – no lettuce or salad greens. However, today I’m sharing one of my favorite versions of this salad. It’s a version you’ll often see in restaurants and is made with a romaine lettuce base, briny olives, chunks of feta, and ripe tomatoes. I love these types of tossed cool, crisp salads. They’re fresh and hearty with so much flavor in every bite.

This recipe is easy to adapt to your tastes or to whatever vegetables you have on hand.

There are a few ingredients that make this salad Greek; Kalamata olives, feta cheese, and red onions. Other ingredients you might like to add would be cucumbers and green peppers.
