Notes

  • Don't crumble the feta! Traditionally, the feta is cut into slices and placed on the salad before serving.
  • Since Greek salad is a simple salad made with a handful of fresh ingredients, it's important that all your ingredients are high quality.
  • If you cannot find Persian or mini cucumbers, use English cucumbers but discard the seeds.
