A wonderfully simple side salad that still delivers on flavour. Make sure to use good quality feta - it's worth it.

Buyer's guide

You can buy feta pre-packed in most supermarkets or it’s available ready-cubed in jars of oil, often flavoured with herbs.


In Greek cooking feta is used mostly for gratins and pastries and, of course, the classic Greek salad. It holds its shape quite well so can be carefully skewered and grilled or barbecued. If you want to remove some of the saltiness, just soak the cheese in milk or water for a couple of minutes.
