Traditional Greek Salad Recipe

We just made a fantastic Traditional Greek Salad Recipe!  This is a recipe we usually add as a side dish to some grilled chicken or steak but you can make it a full meal by adding any protein you want to this salad.  Using leftover proteins from the day before makes it more enjoyable to eat them in a greek salad recipe just like this!

This healthy greek salad recipe is loaded with flavor when you use the dressing recipe below.  You can double or even triple that recipe as needed too.

Feel free to change up the ingredients in this recipe if you want.  For example, I add a couple of different types of olives on occasion too.  I might also add some sliced and diced salami too.

There are many ways to make a traditional greek salad but this is our low carb way to enjoy this dish.

In our simple greek salad, we use fresh herbs from our garden but you can use dried seasonings as well.

You wanna hear something funny?  Ever since going keto or low carb I no longer use my pasta bowls as much but I always use them for my salads like this!  I promise you that pasta bowls make the BEST salad bowls ever.  Go ahead, change my mind.  I doubt you can.
