  • Summary

    If you’re looking for a traditional Greek salad, this isn’t the one but I like this one better. Because along with juicy tomatoes, cucumbers, crunchy red peppers, olives, red onions, feta cheese, parsley and mint for herby flavor, there are pita chips for extra crunch and texture. This light yet satisfying salad is loaded with flavor from not only the veggies and herbs but also from the easy, shake-together vinaigrette of red wine vinegar, garlic, and olive oil. Easy, ready in 10 minutes, there’s flexibility with the ingredients, and perfect when your garden is bursting with tomatoes and cucumbers.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups diced tomatoes (from about 2 to 3 medium/large), seeded if desired
    • 1 1/2 cups diced English cucumber (from about half of one cucumber)
    • 1 1/2 cups diced red bell pepper (from about 1 medium/large pepper), seeded
    • 1 to 1 1/2 cups lightly crushed pita chips (I crush them in my palm)
    • 1/2 to 3/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled or diced
    • 1/2 cup small-diced red onion (rinse under warm water to take the bitey edge off)
    • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, sliced if desired (black olives may be substituted)
    • 1/3 cup fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, finely minced (regular parsley may be substituted)
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh mint, finely minced
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    • 1 clove garlic, finely minced or pressed
    • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt, or to taste
    • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar, optional and to taste (takes the edge off the acidity from tomatoes and peppers)
