Have you met the sweet Jessica of Mom 4 Real? She’s here today for our Summer Salad Series! When you look at the beautiful picture of Jessica’s Greek salad below, you’ll think it takes tons of prep time to create. But read on… you won’t believe how quickly you can whip up this Greek treat! Welcome, Jessica!
Hi there! I’m Jessica from Mom 4 Real, where I share budget friendly home decor, simple recipes and tons of easy cleaning tips and tricks! I am so excited to be over here at Making Lemonade to share one of my favorite go to summer salad recipes! I love Greek food, and my Artichoke Greek Salad is the perfect salad to complement any Greek dish or to take to a cookout. It’s so simple to make with a few canned items, store bought dressing and a few fresh veggies. It literally takes minutes to throw together.
2 cups of canned artichoke hearts (quartered)
1 can of kalamata olives (pits removed)
1/2 can of black olives (pits removed)
1 cup of sliced red onions
1 1/2 cups of cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup of sliced green pepper
3/4 cup of store bought Greek or Italian Dressing
3/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese
Simply drain all of the canned items and add them to a bowl. Add in the rest of the ingredients and lightly toss. Allow the salad to sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours and serve! This salad can be made the night before to save time as well!
That ‘s it folks…quickest. salad. ever.
