This is a traditional, horiatiko or village, chopped Greek salad. A fail-proof recipe, the fresher your veggies are here, the more delicious your salad will be. I think of it as a very farmers market friendly dish!
So quick and easy, you’ll find yourself making this salad all the time. I’ve listed out the ingredients by number of each vegetable with corresponding cup measurements so you can easily scale this recipe to accommodate any size crowd.
I like to chop up the veggies for this salad into bite size chunks because, truth be told, I hate to have to cut up my salad on the plate. Bite sized pieces also make this dish very child and entertainment friendly.
Kids think it’s fun to eat little pieces of finger foods and you can serve the small veggie chunks in so many interesting ways for guests.
My favorite cucumber here is the English variety that come with fewer seeds. I often seed the tomatoes too if I have time. And think about using as many different colors as you can in this recipe. You can’t beat pretty, nutritious and delicious!
