Greek Salad Shopping Tip

Stock up on good quality extra-virgin olive oil, feta cheese, Kalamata olives, red wine vinegar, oregano, and lemons – these ingredients are central to Greek cuisine

Greek Salad Cooking Tip

Simplicity is the secret to Greek cuisine, so paying attention to details such as marinating, seasoning well, and using only the freshest ingredients is key.

Greek Salad Wine Pairing

Salads with vinegar-based dressings don't go well with wine. Albariño, torrontés, or riesling with seafood or poultry salads in mayonnaise- or cream-based dressings; pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillion, or grüner veltliner with salads with lemon juice-based dressings.
