Fresh  & Healthy Greek Salad Recipe + Dressing –  Natasha’s Kitchen


– [Natasha] Hi everyone, it’s
Natasha of Natashaskitchen.com and today, we are making a
fresh and flavorful Greek salad. This is loaded with all
the best ingredients and you’ll want the zesty lemon dressing on all of your salads. You’ll need one large or two small heads of romaine lettuce. (Natasha laughs) Here’s our favorite way to chop lettuce. Cut it in half, then remove the core. (cat yowls) Slice in half again, then
chop into bite-sized pieces. To keep your romaine lettuce really crisp, make sure you rinse in ice-cold water. Drain well and then spin completely dry, because the last thing
you want is a soggy salad. Transfer the lettuce to
a pretty serving bowl, then slice up one English cucumber. Add those to your salad bowl. Now, slice one cup of
cherry tomatoes into halves or you can use a large, diced tomato. Transfer those to the bowl as well and now, you’re going to slice
half of a sweet bell pepper and you can use any color,
red, orange, or yellow, whatever you have on hand. Into the bowl they go. Now, slice half of a medium red onion. I like this thinly sliced and it adds a great pop of color and flavor. And now, my favorite
ingredient, one large avocado. Peel, pit, and slice that
into bite-sized pieces and add it to the bowl. Now, slice and add half
a cup of Kalamata olives. And last but not least,
dice and add four ounces of feta cheese and the
Kalamata olives and feta cheese give this salad an
amazing, salty, tangy bite, so do not skip them. On to the easy Greek dressing. You’ll need three tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice and squeeze that right
into a small Mason jar. Next, add three tablespoons
of good extra virgin olive oil and press in one garlic clove. Season with half a teaspoon of salt and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper, then put the lid on and shake it up and you just have to smell this dressing to know it’s gonna be good! Alright, all that’s left is
to dress this gorgeous salad, then toss it together and enjoy. Alright, and when you toss,
toss gently but thoroughly, because you want every bite to be coated in that amazing lemon dressing. Oh my goodness, this salad is loaded and I am so hungry for this, so we’re gonna go ahead
and do the taste test. ‘kay. Here we go. Yum. This is a perfect side salad and if you wanna serve
this as a dinner salad, it’s so easy to add some protein. Just use either boiled eggs
or some sliced chicken breast or even steak. Yum. Or shrimp. So many options. Ooh. Alright, here we go, the taste test. A little bit of everything on my fork, ’cause I love the little bits of cheese and the olives, of course,
and creamy avocado. ‘kay, here we go. Mmm, mmm, mmm. If I had to describe
this salad with one word, it would be fresh. (laughs) That lemon dressing, oh my goodness, it is so good and so easy. You’re gonna wanna use
it on all of your salads. Wow, and I love the
textures in this salad. You’ve got the juicy tomatoes and then the crunchy, crisp
cucumbers and bell peppers, creamy avocados, and those salty bites with the cheese and the olives. This is a winner. (laughs) If you guys enjoyed this video, please give us a great

  7. 1 John 2:15-17 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

  9. I have a very similar dressing recipe that is almost exactly like yours. I add 1/4 cup of olive oil, 3 tablespoons lemon, 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar, one tablespoon of Lee & Perins Worchestershire Sauce, minced garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. It is supreme!
