Greek Salad with Potatoes

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.

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 served 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.

Ingredients

  • Sliced cooked new potatoes
  • Sliced sweet pointed red peppers
  • Sliced red onion
  • Cucumber - skin and seeds removed
  • Cherry tomatoes - halved
  • Baby salad leaves
  • Pitted black olives - halved
  • Feta - crumbled
  • Dried oregano
  • olive oil

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 pop it in the fridge. What's your favourite salad?
