If you’ve never had a Greek salad then I’m sorry to tell you that you’ve been missing out big time! Do you know what’s even better than just a Greek salad, though? Greek style salmon salad! It’s packed with flavour, it tastes fresh, and it’s actually filled with nutrients as well. Now, a salad might not sound like a very complicated thing to make, but Greek salad involves a particular combination of ingredients to get that flavour just right, so I spent a lot of time perfecting my delicious seafood version. It gets such great reviews whenever I make it for friends and family that they all ask me for the recipe, so I figured I’d might as well just lay the whole process out for all to see.
Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos! If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.
For this recipe, you’ll need:
- 1 Salad
- 4-5 pieces cherry tomatoes
- 1 large cucumber
- 1 red onion
- 100 g olives
- 1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup old red wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 TBSP dried Oregano
- 100 g Creamy feta cheese
- 100 g Mozzarella
- 100 g Salmon
First, wash each of your vegetables. Next, dice your cucumber, chop your salad, and slice your olive. Then peel and thinly slice your onion in small pieces. Once they’re all chopped, you can combine these ingredients in a big bowl.
Pour one cup of old red wine vinegar into a bowl. Add your sliced onions to that bowl and set it aside for ten minutes to let the onions soak. After ten minutes, you can use a sieve or colander to drain them.
Chop and dice your feta cheese and fresh mozzarella into small, bite-sized cubes.
Combine all of your chopped, sliced, and diced vegetables in a large bowl! I put my lettuce in a well sized mixing bowl and poured my veggies all on top of that bed of greens.
