An authentic Greek salad from Oia, Santorini. Travelling through Greece, I fell in love with the Greek salads on the islands. When I came home, I was determined to replicate that salad for family and friends. This is a great Greek salad recipe because extra salad can marinate in the dressing overnight and be eaten the next day in pita pockets as a sandwich.

Pretty close to what I grew up on in my greek family. I nix the capers, and dress it with olive oil and vinegar, maybe a bit of lemon if I have it on hand. Make sure you use Kalamata olives. Also great with avocado if you have any on hand. Not authentic, but it goes really well with the mix. thanks for posting! =) - 20 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this for my Son, Daughter-in-law and two of my teenaged grandchildren last night. My grandaughter is vegan and loved it and my grandson ate his (telling me all the way through how great it was) and ate the last half of mine because I am not a big eater. What is amazing is that my b-i-law who was a cook and only eats meat and potatoes and doesn't like salads ate the whole thing! The only thing I did different was hollow out big tomatoes and stuff them with the salad and put it in the fridge until dinner. Served on a salad plate with romaine lettuce beneath. They loved the presentation. I used Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House dressing from this site. TO DIE FOR! - 20 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I just use olive oil and sometimes balsamic vinegar to dress this salad. Capers are a nice touch, as are red peppers. Also AMAZING with fresh dill. - 02 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
