Greek Salad

Greek Salad

This salad is perfect for summer produce season: bites of ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onions drizzled with herbs and olive oil, and topped with salty Kalamata olives. Get the tomatoes and cucumbers in-season while you can (and while they’re cheap), and try them with this recipe as a nice break from the standard bowl of leafy greens.

Need some protein to go with that? Here’s a quick and simple baked chicken recipe with matching seasonings: you could serve it with this either hot or cold. Or try it with some baked fish: salmon would be great, and any white fish would also work.

If you personally tolerate dairy, you could always add some feta cheese on top to make even better – or try almond cheese for a dairy-free alternative. But it’s also good without, if you just want to enjoy the fresh flavors of the vegetables without anything else in the way.
