"A yummy and low-fat Greek salad recipe. You can use two green onions instead of the small red onion, if you wish." — Jen

ripe tomatoes, chopped
cucumbers, peeled and chopped
red onion, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons
salt and pepper to taste
crumbled feta cheese
black Greek olives, pitted and sliced
This was really great with a few minor tweaks. I looked over other greek salad recipes on this site and came up with the best dressing. Instead of 4 tsp. of lemon juice, add 3 and 1 tsp of red wine vinegar. For the salt and pepper, add 1/4 tsp of each. Also, add half a green pepper chopped, kalamata olives instead of black and it comes out amazing!
I thought the dressing for this salad reeked. It didn't taste good at all.
Excellent salad! Stirred in just a couple heaping tbsp. of nonfat greek yogurt. I darn near ate the whole bowl. I might try it with the red wine vinegar in place of the lemon juice as other reviewers have suggested and see how that is. The longer it sits, the better it gets. NOTE: A trick Grandma taught me to help draw some of the liquid out of tomatoes is cut them the way you want them on the salad, then lay them on paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Let them sit for a bit and drain. Blot with paper towels. You do this, your salad will be less drippy.
I subsituted 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar for the olive oil and used fat-free feta. It came out absolutely delicious with so much less fat!
Wonderful salad! I used halved grape tomatoes and I didn't have Greek olives so I used black olives instead. When it came to the dressing I took the advice of another reviewer and used Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House dressing scaled down to five servings. Delicious!!!
It's nice to have a change of pace from the usual lettuce or romaine salads, so we tried this. It was very good, and the tart lemon flavor was good. We've had it a couple of times, and varied the size of the chopped vegetables. Try this one.
I really enjoyed this refreshing salad. Light with the lemon dressing, which I just loved, while at the same time a little zesty with the boldness of the oregano (I used fresh). Just as a matter of personal preference I went a little lighter on the feta and did not peel the cucumber.
Great salad. I put this on torn romaine lettuce, and used calamata olives instead of the black. This was just like what you'd get from a fine greek restaurant. Thanks for the recipe.
