SPIRALIZED GREEK STYLE SALAD

Greek flavors are my favorite, especially in salads. I am really excited to share this Spiralized Greek Style Salad with you guys full of fresh, healthy ingredients.

You probably have noticed my love for the flavors of the Greece by all of the Greek inspired salads I share like this Greek Village Salad and Greek Tabbouleh. I am a lover of olives, feta cheese and fresh vegetables. I could eat them every single day and be content!

I am counting down the days until I am sitting on a Greek island eating a Greek salad straight from the source. We leave in about two months and I couldn’t be more excited. Greece has always been on my bucket list for a variety of reasons but one of the main reasons is the food. I love the fresh flavors and ingredients they use along with all of that delicious seafood straight out of the ocean.

For those of you that have a spiralizer you should give this Spiralized Greek Style Salad a try. Its easy and customizable based on what you want to add in to the salad. This would be a great pairing for grilled chicken or salmon to create a full meal. I spiralized a zucchini and half of an english cucumber for this salad and it worked perfectly.

You can really add any of your favorite spiralized veggies–try carrots or bell peppers too. If you don’t have a spiralizer you can actually buy spiralized veggies in the frozen or refrigerated section of many stores.

I live near a Trader Joes and they sell spiralized zucchini, carrots and butternut squash in the frozen section which is a time-saver. Spiralized veggies are a great way to bulk up soups, lettuce wraps, salads or create a side dish for a meal without adding a lot of calories or carbs. It helps keep the meal light and healthy!

HOW CAN I MODIFY THIS SALAD?

  • Add your favorite beans like chickpeas or white beans
  • Get your grains in by adding quinoa, farro, bulgur or your favorite gain.
  • Make this into a meal by pairing it with grilled chicken, salmon or cod.
  • Add whatever fresh herbs you have on hand like mint, dill or Italian parsley.
  • In the summer I love going to the farmers market and adding interesting veggies into salads like heirloom tomatoes, eggplant and colorful carrots.

 

Spiralized Greek Style Salad

Yield: 6
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

 

Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 english cucumber, spiralized
  • 3 large, ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, seeds removed, sliced {I used red, yellow and green}
  • 1 cup kalamata olives
  • 5 oz. feta in brine, drained, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pepperoncinis {whole or chopped}

For the dressing:

  • 1 lemon, juiced {about 2 Tablespoons}
  • 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Garnish:

  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • Green onion, chopped

Instructions

Spiralize your zucchini and cucumber and lay them in a single layer on a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and let the moisture come out. After 15 minute pat dry.
Place the zucchini and cucumber in a large salad bowl. Top with the tomatoes, red onion, bell pepper, olives, feta cheese and pepperoncinis. 
In a mason jar or a salad dressing container combine the lemon juice, olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano and stir or shake to combine. Pour over the salad and gently toss. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh parsley and green onion. 
 

Notes

This salad really doesn't hold up well as leftovers unless you keep the spiralized vegetables separate. I noticed that they add too much water to the salad as they sit overnight. I would also only use the dressing as you eat the salad otherwise the ingredients will get soggy. 

You can add a variety of other ingredients including chickpeas or white beans, seeds and nuts and any vegetable you like.  I like to add grilled chicken or a piece of salmon for a full meal.
