Easy Greek Salad Recipe:

I have always loved a Greek salad. The flavors are so amazing and it has always been one of my favorite salads.

There is just something so delicious and refreshing about the tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and more blended with lots of olives and feta cheese. Yum!

The flavor of the Greek Salad simply can’t be beat. However, one day I wanted to try something new and turned my traditional Greek Salad recipe into an Easy Creamy Greek Salad.

What is Creamy Greek Salad Dressing Made Of?

The creaminess is just out of this world and so good! If you love Greek salad, this creamy version is a must try. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still love the traditional style as well but this new creamy style Greek salad is just SO good.

The combination of the Greek Yogurt, Lime Juice, dried oregano and minced garlic gives it that creamy texture without a lot of calories.

Variation Ideas:

  • Add Pasta – You can add in cooked pasta like rotini, penne, or bowtie pasta. If you add in pasta make it has cooled before adding to your salad.
  • Slice Black Olives – Toss in some slice black olives. Most of my family and friends love black olives, so I like some in. Kalamata olives is another option.
  • Add in other Vegetables – I make this creamy Greek salad a lot because I can use what I have. This is a great way to use up vegetables that might be going bad. Cherry tomatoes would be a good substitution.
  • Dressing Options – You can also use a red wine vinegar with lemon juice or olive oil.

Greek Salad is a Crowd Pleaser:

The pasta salad style is perfect for pot lucks, BBQ’s and more. If you need to bulk up a meal and feed a lot of people, this salad is the perfect idea. Throw in some pasta and you have a really delicious meal to feed a crowd. 

We love that it is a light salad that can be served at many different functions.

What to serve with Greek salad?

This salad is delicious alone. I have this for a light lunch or dinner frequently. It always hits the spot.

  • Grilled Chicken – However, if you want to serve it with something, it is so versatile. We love it with this Easy Grilled Chicken Kabob Recipe or Grilled Balsamic Glazed Chicken.
  • Smoked Turkey – Turkey is another option that pairs well with this salad. It really is delicious with lots of things.
  • Serve with Sandwich – You can serve this salad as side to your sandwich. It is also great on a sandwich.
  • Top of a Green Salad – You can even top this salad on a green salad.

Tip for making this easy Greek salad:

  • Perfect for Grilling Season – The flavors go well with grilled chicken and it is the best meal. During the summer months when I try not to heat up the kitchen, this salad and grilled chicken are on our permanent menu plan rotation.
  • Chop Vegetables in advance – This recipe calls for diced onions and bell peppers. Use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions and peppers in advance.
  • Let Pasta Cool – If you are adding pasta to this salad, make sure to let it cool.
  • Cook Pasta – When preparing pasta, let it cook a little longer than al dente. It will firm up as it cools.

Perfect Leftover Salad:

I try to always make extra of this salad so I can make sure to have leftovers. Everyone goes crazy over it so if I don’t double the recipe, there won’t be any left.

It makes the perfect lunch during the week and so easy because you can make it once and enjoy it multiple times.  This Greek Salad is one of those meals that I don’t get tired of having.
