Salads in a Jar: My Modified Greek Salad | Therese P.


my greek Inspired Salad in a jar

I like a simple salad and as I said in a previous post, Greek and caprese salads are my summer favorites with chicken Caesar and corn and black beans, and tuna nicoise in 3rd.

There’s nothing quite like making a quick Greek-inspired salad when I need a fresh, hearty meal. Salted and fermented fixings are extremely satisfying. I use the term inspired because I’m not Greek and I bring my twist to this traditional salad.

My version has all the basics: grape or multi-colored tomatoes, red onions, Kalamata olives, and feta cheese. However, I add fresh garlic, stuffed green olives and small multicolored peppers. If I add pasta or cereal, I prefer orzo or quinoa.

You can use a store-bought balsamic vinaigrette, but I think homemade is best.

My dressing is simple and I prepare it in a small jar.
