Marinated Greek Salad

Marinated Greek Salad is a Greek salad without the romaine lettuce. It has tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, bell peppers, olives, pepperocinis and Feta cheese. Because there’s no lettuce, this salad will keep in your refrigerator a couple of days (if it lasts that long!) and won’t go bad. Marinating the salad ingredients adds a burst of flavor the vegetables wouldn’t normally get.

This salad is also pretty quick and easy to make. It took me about 10 minutes (or less) to chop or slice vegetables and about two minutes to make the dressing. It’s perfect for those days when you need a side dish but don’t have a lot of time on your hands.

My mom used to make marinated salads for us all the time when we would go home for visits with the kids, though her salads did not have the Greek salad emphasis. So I’ve always enjoyed marinated salads—whether it be Copper Pennies (marinated carrots), Four-Bean Salad (marinated beans), or a marinated mixed vegetable salad which she made almost every time we visited.

The vegetables are nice and crisp. You can make the salad up earlier in the day and it will be ready when dinner is ready. These salads are great time-savers.

If you’re looking for a fantastic Greek salad recipe but you need it to last for a couple of days, than consider this tasty and delicious Marinated Greek Salad. The flavors are superb. The marinade is amazing. And, you and your family will soon be addicted to Greek salad this way!
