Greek Summer Salad

June 10, 2011

I make this recipe year-round but it is perfect for hot weather. I don’t know how the weather is where you live, but here in New Orleans, it’s hot, humid, and basically unbearable at times. That’s why this recipe is perfect for a cool and refreshing side. It also only takes a little bit of chopping and few ingredients.

The recipe pictured here only has 3 main ingredients but I often add feta cheese. Try this recipe for your next outdoor dinner or on a weeknight after a long day.


  • 1 English cucumber
  • 2-3 tomatoes (Roma, Campari, Creole etc.)
  • 1 red onion
  • 3-4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2  tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
Slice the cucumber into 1/2 inch slices and then cut those slices into quarters. Slice the tomatoes into similar sizes as the cucumber. Slice the onion into thin rings and then cut those in half. Mix all of the ingredients together and serve immediately or chill and serve at a later time.

    I’m not one for vegetable salads a lot (I’m a lettuce +whatever + a lot of dressing kind of guy, LOL) but this would be right up my wife’s alley! The weather isn’t any better back here in Alabama, let me tell you. Whew!
