I remember years ago we went to The Greek island of Thassos and had the best Greek salad and mousaka ever!

Sat in a restaurant by the sea with good food, and of course an ice-cold beer and brilliant sunshine; you can't beat it!

Of course, anyone that's been to Greece will have no doubt eaten moussaka.

Greek salad is an essential side to a good moussaka although perhaps not this recipe, or you'll have two lots of potatoes since they are in moussaka as well.

But the other afternoon, on yet another day of sunny hot weather, rather than another BBQ I wanted something, quick, easy and relatively healthy.

Yes, yes I know it isn't traditional for a Greek salad to have potatoes or baby salad leaves for that matter, but that's what I fancied. 😊

This would also be perfect to serve with Greek-style shoulder of lamb. Plus it will go with so many other dishes, so liven up a boring everyday salad and try this instead.


  • cooked new potatoes
  • sweet pointed red peppers
  • red onion
  • cucumber
  • cherry tomatoes
  • baby salad leaves
  • pitted black olives 
  • feta cheese
  • dried oregano
  • olive oil

What can I serve with this?

  • On its own as a light lunch
  • Greek lamb as I mentioned above
  • Pan-fried chicken
  • as a side at a BBQ 

Make ahead

This is perfect with a BBQ - just don't add the feta or olive oil until you are about to serve; instead, keep covered with cling film and put it in the fridge until you're ready.
