Greek salad


Look at those colours!

What I love about salads is not only are they healthy and super pretty with all the vibrant colours but they also provide such an amazing crunch. If you have been following my recent posts, you would know that I have been on a salad spree.

Since salads are great for a light meal, this Greek salad, Soba noodle salad with Asian dressing, Watermelon and tomato salad and Mango salad with mango-mint dressing have been appearing on our table on rotation these days.



Lets talk about this amazing Greek salad which is loved all over the world. Tossed in a simple oregano and basil based dressing, its a simple salad with bold flavours from fresh crunchy summer vegetables and feta cheese.

All you to do is use basic vegetables like tomatoes, cucumber, bell peppers, onion and of-course a good feta cheese. I love Almarai brand but you can go for other brands too available in market.


This salad is colourful, crunchy, healthy and delicious! Perfect summer salad and even great as snack anytime of the day
