A twist on the traditional Greek Salad! Normally, an authentic Greek salad does not contain avocado or lettuce, but consists of green peppers (or capsicum), tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, olives, and onion. In this house, however, we always add avocado. Avocado – on – everything – addiction. And why not?! It’s such a great addition, you’ll be doing it too!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding — BOTH movies — have been on daily rotation over here: after school and all throughout the weekends. MY CHILDREN ARE OBSESSED. (Send HELP!) Because of this obsession, this salad has been happening daily WITH EVERYTHING. Roast a lamb? Make Avocado Greek salad. Grill some chicken? Make a Greek Salad. Bake fish? Yeah, you guessed it. Greek salad. Don’t get me wrong, I’m NOT complaining. But it’s getting to the point I have olives growing outta my ears.

With all this Greek Salad making, and eating… and making, and eating again, I have to say what makes a good Greek salad even better is a dressing so full of flavour, you could drizzle it all over your meat like we do (and like I did here with this Greek Lemon Garlic Chicken Salad). It only takes a few ingredients that I bet you already have in your kitchen. Throw out your bottled dressings. No, seriously… go chuck them out. Once you realise how easy and fast it is to make your own, you’ll be giving the bottled stuff the flick.
