Greek Salad (Horiatiki)

There is something about the freshness and vibrancy of a Greek salad that just adds a whole lot of color to your meal. Not only is it tasty, it is also healthy. ⁠

Greek salad is low-calorie and nutrient-dense, also providing you with a healthy dose of vitamins A and C, as well as potassium and iron. It also contains phytonutrients and antioxidants, which reduce the risk of health problems such as heart disease and cancer.⁠

So, why not just toss a few chopped cucumbers, some sliced tomatoes, feta cheese, olives, garnished with evo3 and oregano, and make your meal a complete one!

  • ½ cup arugula, roughly chopped
  • ½ cucumber, peeled and sliced ¼ thick
  • 2 medium-sized red tomatoes, large-diced
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and large-diced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup Kalamata olives
  • 1 slab of feta cheese
  • 1 tsp capers (optional)

for the vinaigrette

  • 4 tbs of evo3 extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • handful fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

1. In a large bowl combine the arugula, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, red onion, and Kalamata olives.

2. To make the vinaigrette, whisk together the vinegar, garlic, herbs, salt & pepper in a small bowl. Continue whisking while slowly adding the olive oil to make an emulsion. Pour over the vegetables.
