This classic Mediterranean salad gets it flavours from olives, tomato, cucumber and fetta. Greek salad pairs perfectly with chicken, lamb or beef or enjoy it on its own.

There’s a reason why Greek-style salads have gained a massive following over the years – they’re easy to make, generally very healthy and packed full of flavour. The saltiness of the olives and creamy feta cheese is balanced perfectly by the fresh tomatoes and cucumber. Top it all off with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and you’ve got yourself a tasty and nutritious lunch! To jazz it up, accompany your salads with some grilled lamb, crumbed chicken or battered seafood.
