Simple Greek Salad

This is a classic and easy salad with a very simple dressing made at home. Made with simple and delicious ingredients and makes summer/spring scream in your mouth with all fresh ingredients. This can be accompanied with any meal and gives a great start to your meal.

Ingredients
Lettuce/greens - I used an artisan spring mix from Costco
Cherry tomatoes - 10
Cucumber - 1
Black olives -5
Goat cheese - 1 tablespoon (can be replaced with feta cheese)

For the dressing (makes 1 serving)
Apple cider vinegar - 1/2 tablespoon
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 1 tablespoon
Honey - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients together and whisk away until well combined. You can add fresh herbs to the dressing if you like. I just wanted to keep it simple.

Slice the olives and cucumber into thin slices. In a bowl, assemble a bed of lettuce and top it with cherry tomatoes, olives, cucumbers and sprinkle the goat cheese on top. Drizzle the dressing on top and toss. Chill the salad by wrapping the bowl with a plastic wrap and leaving in the fridge for about half an hour.

Enjoy you healthy delicious salad.

  2. Hi Divya! I am off grains for sometime, and these kinds of salads are just what I'm looks for! :-)) Yum! BTW - why is goat cheese so expensive, or is it just the shops near my place in Sydney!?
