Easy Greek salad made with simple, fresh and fuss-free ingredients. This salad will be great for hot, summer days, perfect for light lunch or dinner!
Welcome to the new post friends!
Today, I have a couple of exciting things to share with you. Light and delicious Greek salad, plus a new and exciting way to shop for your groceries online that could revolutionise the way you do it!
Weekly shopping struggle is real...
When it comes to my regular food shopping, I must admit, it's not the highlight of my week. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the occasional stroll around the supermarket, but I also find them overcrowded and manic at times.
With my diet being based mainly around vegetarian and vegan cuisine, sometimes, going to the shop to do weekly groceries can be a bit time consuming. I have to check every label and read the list of the ingredients for almost every product that I buy. In the past, I often bought something thinking it's vegetarian or vegan, only to discover later that it is not. The frustration and disappointment which I can only blame myself for (because I was rushing through it and couldn't be bothered to read the label). Grrr!
Online shopping made easy with Tesco
Gradually, I've been growing my appreciation for online shopping, because it makes things so much easier and quicker. I no longer need to spend time between supermarket aisles, studying the labels. I can do it quickly and effortlessly, via Tesco's website or their groceries app on my phone, at the comfort of my own home or office. Their latest feature, the dietary and lifestyle filters tool made the whole process even quicker and better!
This new tool allows you to complete your online shop on the website or via the app, whilst being able to filter your product search into categories, such as vegetarian, vegan, paleo, no-gluten and many more! If you have any special dietary requirements, or simply want to explore and try new trends or cuisines, this tool should be definitely on your radar!
It's great to see how Tesco have cleverly tailored online shopping experience to suit so many different lifestyles and needs, and still kept the whole thing really easy and quick to use. As much as we don't want to admit it, we do live in times when our lifestyle and occupations are more and more demanding, leaving us less precious time for simple pleasures, not to mention time to pay attention to what we eat. By using their app along with filters, a whole food shopping experience has become smooth and super quick, it can literally be done in minutes, rather than my usual couple of hours, and I no longer fear that I will find an unwanted ingredient in one of the products!
Easy Greek salad- perfect for the hot summer day!
This classic salad is one of the simplest, yet one of the most popular salads in our household. It requires only 7 ingredients and literally almost no effort to prepare. Fresh tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and olives, along with some feta cheese (can be swapped for vegan equivalent), oregano and olive oil. Perfect light lunch or dinner, it also makes great side to any meal. It can also be easily customised, I often add some crunchy apples or watermelon to it, cooked pasta can also be a great addition!
Thanks for reading today's post, I hope you've enjoyed it. As always, it would be great to hear from you, so don't be shy and leave me a comment below!
Until next time!

Such a delicious salad, my dear Anna!?
I absolutely love greek ingredients. Especially olives are always a must have ingredient for me.?
Lots of love,
Hey Bianca! Great to see you here, thanks so much for stopping by! Would you believe, I hated olives when I was younger, there was no way I would eat one! And now, just like you , I can't live without them!
Looks like a great App, this is my kind of salad, so easy to prepare and simple yet full of flavors!
Thanks for checking it out Michelle!
It's funny how the ways we shop are changing, but anything that can save me some time is always a bonus! Glad you like the salad too!x
This looks scrumptious! Greek salad is one of my favorite salads. Gimmie a fork!
Mine too Michele! Glad you like it as much as I do! Passing a fork now.... 🙂
That is a great app to help with grocery shopping. I love the Greek salad,. It is perfect for my family for a light dinner in the summer or a side salad to soup in the fall.
So glad you think so too Eileen! I've been using it more and more, and can't believe how much time it's saving me! Love this little tool!
This salad looks very unique and delicious! I love the fresh ingredients. Pinning for later!
Very happy to read that you like this recipe Vanessa. Thanks so much!
I'm a sucker for any Greek salad so this looks amazing! I can even see myself eating this with a sliced baguette or gluten-free crackers.
Oh yes Jennifer!
I say a slice of bread is compulsory! So glad to hear you like this one! Thank you!
I'm not a fan of olives, but I love everything else on this salad. I have to admit, I'm still not sold on the online grocery shopping game. I like picking out my own produce, and often find items that I need/want when I'm browsing aisles. But I totally get it for people who have to read/study labels!
Hello Karyl! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Olives are a funny thing, I absolutely hated them when I was younger, and then somehow, it changed and went in completely opposite direction- I love them now, and love adding them to my salads too!
I don't have a Tesco, but I do use a delivery service. It is a tremendous time saver for me. Greek salad is not something I'm a fan of, but my mom could eat it every day!
Glad to hear that you also use delivery service, it's so much easier to do it at your own pace and place, isn't it?
Great fresh ingredients, sound so summery and delicious. Great for lunch at work or with the family!
Totally, this is one of the simplest, yet most delicious salads! Glad you like it as much as I do!
I've yet to try online shopping, so thanks for the encouragement here! I love a Greek salad (any time of year), and your version looks simple and healthy!
Thanks so much Tamara, Greek salad is such a classic, it's really great all year around! And yes, online grocery shopping is relatively new to me too, but I'm already a converter!
I am totally considering online grocery shopping. I have not tried it yet but the thought of conveniently browsing in the comfort of your home for groceries is a breeze. I have little kids and its hard to take them around with me at all times. Online shopping is something I see in my very near future.
Thanks so much for visiting and for your comment! I can only imagine how tricky it can be to arrange a trip to the supermarket with the little ones around! I think the online grocery shopping is the way forward, although I still enjoy the occasional trip to my local supermarket 🙂
Simple ingredients and to the point. Love this recipe as it's easy to make, looks great and so healthy !!
Hi Alisha! Thanks so much for the kind comments, so happy to read that you like the recipe!
Yippie for stress free online shopping, and for this beautiful simple and delicious Greek salad. The answers to hot summer days!
haha, yippie to all of that Nicoletta!
So happy to read that you like the recipe and today's post!thank you!
While I love living in the country, I would love to be able to have my groceries delivered right to my front door. This salad looks so light and refreshing, perfect for a warm summer afternoon really.
Hey Rae! It's such a convenient way of doing it, especially when living in the countryside! And yes, I've been living on this salad for almost a month now, it's the only thing I can eat in this heat we're having in the UK!
What a fabulous Greek salad, it's quick and has a wonderful color composition. Congrats! I wish our grocery shops here in Germany would offer a similar app as Tesco does. I can imagine it saves a bunch of time.
Hello Gabi, thanks for stopping by!
Sometimes the simplest ingredients work best, right?
And I hope that stores near you will come up with something as handy and helpful as this little tool!

Greek Salad is one of my favorites! The flavors are so perfect together.
Thank you Denisse, it's such classic, I love the simplicity of this dish too, minimum effort and maximum taste!
The salad looks absolutely gorgeous and the Tesco App is definitely something I need to get on top of. Looks so handy!
Hi Chris, thanks so much for stopping by! Glad to hear you find it useful, hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!
I love Greek salad. Feta has to be one of my favourite cheeses ever!
Thanks so much Kacie!
It's my favourite to add it to summer salads, glad you're also a fan!

Since moving to the city I have found that online shopping. . .even for basic necessities. . .is critical because resources can be somewhat limited & it's always a pain to get to the store & lug the stuff back. Such a great tool to help with that process. Loving the salad too. So good to munch on while you do the shopping. ?
thanks so much Lynn! I've never been much of a city girl myself, but I had my share in living in a few, and I always struggled with the food shopping there, so I can totally relate to that! Happy to hear you've found this as helpful as I did!
Tania | Fit Foodie Nutter
I feel you with grocery shopping Anna! I really don't like it at all, so thank goodness for online shopping! This salad looks delicious Anna - perfect for this heat (I'm melting like a lolly lol). Have a great weekend lovely xxx
Haha, it's the best summer ever, right Tania? And I'm loving the time you can save using this, I can sit outside with a glass of something cold in my hand, rather than sweating in the supermarket! Enjoy your weekend too, see you soon!
looks beautiful I will try definitely
Nice to see you here! And I really hope you will try it! Hugs!
