Greek salad

I don’t need to look up a recipe to make a Greek salad but I thought it would be useful to post one up so I can direct my boys to it when I want them to make up a Greek salad for dinner.

These quantities make enough for 6 people (or 4 with leftovers for lunch the next day) and it takes about 10 minutes to make. We had this salad together with with a piece of pitta and humus each and some grilled halloumi cheese for dinner tonight.


  • 1 cucumber
  • 8 medium tomatoes
  • 2 medium red onions
  • 200g feta cheese
  • handful pitted black olives
  • 3 generous slugs of olive oil


  1. Slice or chunk cucumber and put in large salad bowl
  2. cut tomatoes in half, cut out the core then cut each half into 3 pieces and put into salad bowl with cucumber
  3. Peel red onions, cut in half then cut each half into thin slices and put into salad bowl
  4. Put three good slugs of olive oil over salad and toss
  5. Cut up feta cheese into cubes and put on top
  6. Cut or tear olives in half and put on top
  7. Toss salad gently to mix a bit more
  8. Serve
