How do you make this Simple Greek Salad?
This vegan recipe doesn’t get much easier than this. You’ll want to do the following to whip up this masterpiece:
Make the dressing
To make this dressing, it’ll only take you about 5 minutes and you can store it to use for future salads. This homemade dressing really will make this salad. Don’t take the lazy way out and go buy store-bought Greek dressing. It is not authentic, and less healthy for you. Plus, this dressing is so easy you have no excuse. All you do is:
To a medium-sized mason jar add all the ingredients and shake till well combined
Use immediately and store it in the fridge for at least 10 days
Make the Quick Pickled Onions
These onions really take the salad to the next level and are so much better (in my opinion) than just using raw, simple red onions. Don’t get turned off by the word “pickled” because these don’t take that long to whip together and you won’t be waiting months for them to set in their jars. All you do is:
Combine all your ingredients into a medium-sized bowl and gently stir
Let the ingredients sit for at least 1 hour and max 3 days before eating
You can use these onions on a lot of things like tacos, gyros, pulled pork, etc.
Make the Simple Homemade Greek Salad
Now for the grand finale, and the easiest part. All you have to do here is combine all the ingredients listed in this recipe below in a bowl and mix them together while drizzling your lemon dressing on top. This isn’t a trick. It’s really that easy to make. This salad will go perfectly with your next BBQ, pot luck, as a side, or the main course. Enjoy!
