Greek Salad

I’ve been feeling really uninspired and lazy this week, and so I haven’t really taken much time to actually cook a lot.  I have had a lot more light meals, because I simply haven’t had the time or energy.  So, I have been enjoying a variety of salad dishes and you would be surprised how much you can do with salads.  There are so many different types that you can make; potato salad, egg salad, Caesar salad, Mediterranean, the list is endless.  Lately I have been addicted to Greek salads, maybe it’s because we’ve had Feta cheese in the house, or maybe it’s because I enjoyed a lovely Greek Salad at Intercontinental hotel whilst in Zambia.  Either way Greek salad is really hitting the spot for me, so here’s one of my favourite Greek salad recipes.  You can enjoy it with any meat or poultry; from T-bone steak or lamb, to chicken or duck.  This salad is perfect for a healthy meal and great for summer BBQ’s and parties.  If anyone ever asks you to bring a dish to a party, you can simply toss together these simple ingredients, and you will be sure to impress.  Enjoy!!

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4 people as a side dish and it can easily be double for more portions


  • 4 large tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1 cucumber, roughly chopped
  • ½ a red onion, thinly sliced
  • 16 black olives, sliced or whole
  • 1 tsp dried oregano (optional)
  • 85g feta cheese, cut into square cubes
  • 4 tbsp of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cut up your ingredients as instructed above. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, and season with salt and pepper.


Serve as a side with any main…although maybe not with nshima and Kapenta this time.  You can substitute your feta cheese with soft goat’s cheese, if you cannot find it in your local supermarkets.

  1. Nice but the recommendation to have this salad with meat, poultry, T-bone steak, lamb, chicken or duck; sounds ill advised since that’s a Protein overload to have Flesh with this Cheese salad. It’s not a good balance.

    Cheese is Protein and often hard to digest. It’s a bit heavy pairing it with meat. Maybe just stick to a large portion of the salad on its own with Warm Pitta Bread or have a plain salad without the cheese if you must have meat.
