This is the only traditional Greek salad on this site. I hate it when you are instructed to add in a million different things. Greek salad is SIMPLE...Oregano and a little mint MAYBE tops it off.
I think maybe you forgot to add the oregano?? It's not authentic Greek salad without the oregano in the dressing - I would add about 1 tsp of dried oregano leaves to this dressing - then YUM! :-)
Simple and delicious - I used half the amount of red onion called for, added a little oregano and bit of salt and pepper.
I loved it! Didn't have Feta cheese, but added sliced radish and salt and pepper. PERFECT!!
Add some oregano and this would be exactly what I learned to make in Greece. If you have other colors of bell peppers available, I would add them as well. The best Feta is the block packed in juice--you'll have to crumble it yourself, but if you can find it, it's a lot better than the pre-crumbled kind. People go crazy over this salad every time I make it.
I wanted to try a Greek salad without lettuce and gave this one a try. It was pretty good. I added 1/2 tsp of oregano flakes to the mixture prior to 'cooling' in the fridge. Next time I'd cut back on one of the tomatoes and add another pepper instead. Thanks for sharing.
where are the olives...no Greek salad without them. Good dressing tho, thanks.
Wonderful! Big hit at pot luck. This actually measures out more than enough in one serving. Will make again
