Fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onion mixed with kalmata olives and feta tossed with a herbed red wine vinaigrette make a salad that is perfect for any occasion.
This recipe was something I put together for casual meal with my family as a side when we grilled marinated chicken. This recipe is so easy to put together- just a little chopping.
I use a homemade red wine oregano vinaigrette with a little olive brine for the dressing. However, this salad would be delicious plain or even with a little balsamic or other flavored vinegar.
I like to add a little brine to mine because I love the olive flavor, but you prefer it not as strong you can certainly omit it from the dressing.
The flavors are so fresh an yummy, and this salad stores really well in the fridge and can be made 1-2 days in advance.
I love using feta for this salad, but a sprinkle of Parmesan would be delicious as well.
When we grill I always like to have some type of veggie to serve with our meal, and it is even better when it can be raw and it makes my prep so much easier.
