Horiatiki Salata


My salad from my first meal in Greece

Ever since I visited Greece this past March I have frowned upon Greek Salads that are not the traditional Greek Salad. I just don’t understand why we have to Americanize something that is so simple and perfect.

We ordered Greek Salad for every meal and by the time the trip was over  I was a little crazy of it but a week after I got back I wanted it again, desperately. I found Sophia’s Greek Pantry in Belmont so I go there and get Feta, Tzatziki, and these amazing imported filled croissants from 7days.

Horiatiki (Greek Salad)

Tomatoes, cut into wedges

Green Pepper, sliced very thin

Red Onion, sliced very thin

Cucumber, peeled, halved, and slice (remove seeds if it is wet/has a lot of seeds)


Feta Cheese

Dressing: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Red wine vinegar, lemon, S&P

Cut all veggies and add dressing… enjoy

I did not give proportions because I think it all depends on your own taste. I don’t like olives to I leave them out and I really like a lot of onion so I add in more than typical.

Emily’s mom gave us two HUGE tomatoes and a cucumber. I added in some of our yellow pear tomatoes that have finally begun to ripen.



On a sad side note: There are fires in the suburbs of Athens are are causing a lot of destruction. I hope they get them under control quickly!
