Greek Salad Flatbreads


Greek salad is infused with the taste of summer and sunshine.  Zesty, zingy and full of fresh oregano this is fast becoming a staple for lunch.  It also takes about 2 minutes to make and is really good for you.  We're lucky enough to have bushels of oregano growing in the garden and before long the tomatoes will be ready to add to the homegrown deliciousness.  Use whatever type of flatbread you love, if you're not carbohydrate conscious the thick doughy ones are a treat, if you're watching your calories a thin multigrain cracker will keep you trim and fill you up!




Greek Salad Flatbread.


1 head of romaine lettuce,
4 tomatoes diced
4 -6 black olives, pitted and chopped
¼ red onion, finely chopped
6 oz feta cheese, diced
1 cucumber, seeded and diced
Fresh oregano

For the dressing;

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
6 tablespoons of olive oil

Flatbreads of your choice

Mix all the salad ingredients together.  To make the dressing place the mustard, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper together in a bowl and mix.  Whisk in the olive oil, one tablespoon at a time until the dressing is emulsified. 

Pour the dressing over the salad and toss.  Pile the salad onto of the flatbreads and enjoy.

  12. Mmmmm- there's nothing quite like a Greek salad to make you realise summer is here at last! And isn't it lovely to add more and more of your homegrown produce as the season progresses? This is one of the meals I miss since becoming vegan, but I'm working on a feta-like cheese sub, as tofu just doesn't cut it in Greek salad. Thanks for the lovely post :)

  19. That sure is a great idea summer lunch. It looks so fresh and flavorful. I like the idea of pairing it with a flat bread. We Indians are known for our flat breads and I think a left over one would be ideal for this salad. thanks for sharing.
