This is an incredibly good Greek salad recipe, nice and tangy and even better in the summer when you use fresh vegetables!

I just made this salad and it was great!. My husband and I loved it. But.....I did change a few things. First of all I did use all of the Olive Oil plus I added 3 T. of Red Wine Vinegar, garlic powder and 3T of sugar. Once I added the sugar that was La Difference! Viva! It made all the difference in the world. The dressing was so good that you could have lapped up the remaining dressing in the bottom of the bowel with some warm buttered French or Italian Bread and made a meal on that alone! Try it with the sugar. Its sensational. Read More

The way the salad was presented allowed one to really appreciate the vegetable flavors. I was on a quest to find the "restaurant style" Greek salad. I added more oregano (doubled the dressing portions) used mediterranian feta, no olives, and red wine vinegar. Now the red wine vinegar gave it the missing zip in my opinion. This may change the healthiness but if I live on this stuff, I am sure it will be great eating vegees regularly! Pita bread is a must w/my Greek salads too! (my next quest~to find a lowfat recipe!) Thank you! Read More

This was very tasty! Go buy a jar of kalamata olives instead add a splash of red wine vinegar and some garlic and it's even better! Read More

LOVED this salad! Tastes like the ones served at the restaurants! I reduced the olive oil by 1 TBLS and in its place I used a TBLS of red wine vinegar! It does get soggy pretty fast so do not pour the dressing over the salad until your just ready to serve. Still will make again! Read More

This salad is WONDERFUL. I have made it once a week since first trying it. It is very much like what you get at a nice restaurant. The only change I made was adding two Tbsp. of red wine vinegar to the dressing and more feta to the salad. We have it with crusty french bread for a light dinner. Read More

I LOVED THIS!!!! Was looking for recipe with what I had in the fridge so I skipped feta cheese n green bell pepper. I used what ever lettuce I had (don't know the name of it:P) and used green olives instead of black. And I also added slices of hard boiled eggs. It was yummy!! Never thought I'd enjoy raw red onions but they were sweet! I did add a bit of sugar in the dressing. Read More
