This dish is opposite of neat and tidy. It’s all about the slice and dice: chunky tomatoes and cucumbers as the base. We left that boring lettuce behind for this salad; most authentic Greek salads do not involve it anyway. Elevate your dish with a gorgeous mix of
artisan heirloom tomatoes.
Today, we are focusing on a simplistic, but oh-so-delicious Greek salad. It involves a knife, cutting board, bowls and the ingredients. Yes, that’s right! No use of the grill, oven, nor stovetop in this meal prep. Easy Peasy, y’all!
Are you ready? Let’s go! Whip out those ingredients from the cooled pantry [refrigerator & freezer] and dry pantry:
1 cup Kabuli! Chickpeas
1 cup Cucumbers
1 cup Cherry tomatoes
½ Red Onion, chopped
½ cup Pitted Kalamata Olives (optional)
½ cup Feta
¼ cup Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 Juice of a Lemon
1 tsp Sugar, to taste
½ tsp Garlic, minced
1 tsp Oregano, dried
1 tsp Parsley, dried
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Pepper
Now, let’s get to chopping those cucumbers, tomatoes, and onion!
Place them into a bowl for mixing. Measure and pour those Kabuli! Chickpeas into the same bowl. But first, make sure you follow the bag instructions!
How did that go?
Let’s start on the dressing!
Pour and whip the ingredients together in a separate bowl: oil, vinegar, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, parsley, salt and pepper. You’re going to add a touch of sweetness to this vinegar dressing. No one wants the vinegar bite in every mouth full of salad they eat!
This is the fun step! Use your creativity…please don’t measure, just sprinkle! A whole lot of sprinkling of feta cheese.
