Here are some easy variations to make this recipe work for you:

  • Add more veggies, like sliced green or red bell pepper, and olives (I like Kalamata olives or black olives).
  • Substitute the lemon juice for vinegar, including apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar.
  • Use feta cubes instead of crumbled feta.
  • For added flavor, add 1 minced garlic clove or 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard.
  • For a creamy Greek cucumber salad that’s similar to Tzatziki dressing, stir in 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt.

  1. This looks so good. It’s something my husband would have tried minus the oregano. He was not a fan of oregano so I quit putting it in my spaghetti sauce. He passed away earlier this month two days shy of his 56th birthday. I will have to make it and think of him.

    1. Aileen,
      I think this salad looks good too!!! I am sorry about your husband. I am sure you miss him. I don’t know something about your story touched me.
      God Bless you, sister.

    Oh my, perfection in a salad. Just in time for our family reunion in July. I’ll be taking this for sure. TY.

    Christy, as always, your recipe looks fabulous. When I make this, I think I’ll add some sliced Kalamata olives (or even black olives or green olives) and maybe some sliced peperoncini peppers as well! Either way, I’m sure this recipe will taste fabulous!

  4. I make a variation of this – no feta. Chop onions, cukes, and tomatoes and cover with Italian dressing. Sometimes even add green pepper. Quick, refreshing side. But will try your lemon juice, olive oil and oregano next time.
