Traditional Greek salad recipe with chunky bites of fresh cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, bell peppers, feta and olives. Finished with a drizzle of red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.


  • 2 cucumbers, peeled & deseeded
  • 68 small tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 bell pepper, red or orange, small diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, small diced
  • block of feta cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 c red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 c minced flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp coarse black pepper


  1. Peel the cucumbers. Sliced in half and de-seed. Sliced the cucumber halves again into quarters, then dice into 1-inch pieces. Add to a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Sliced the small tomatoes into quarters. Follow with the bell pepper, red onion and feta, dicing them into 1-1/2 inch pieces. Add to the bowl. Drizzle with red wine vinegar and olive oil. Toss well. 
  3. Season with sea salt and coarse black pepper. Garnish with parsley. Toss one more time and serve. Enjoy immediately or store in an air-tight container and enjoy for up to 5 days. 


  • Peel and de-seed the cucumber to remove the bitter seeds and skin. This is advised if following a lectin-free diet or if you are struggling with arthritis or joint pain.
  • Dice your vegetables into 1-inch pieces.
  • Reach for feta cheese from sheeps milk, or feta in brine for a more authentic flavor.
  • Use high quality single origin extra virgin olive oil (organic preferred). Using high quality ingredients will improve the flavors of the salad.
  • Add capers or fresh mint if desired.
