This spiral cut Greek salad delivers a flavor-packed punch that satisfies!
It’s not only super pretty it’s so delicious.
The dressing puts this over the top!
The base of this salad is spiral slices of cucumbers then topped with red onions, feta cheese, pepperoncini, olives, and tomatoes.
The weather is heating up and it’s the perfect time for a salad, and this one of PACKING some major flavor.
I love fresh oregano and have some growing in my backyard, I don’t have a green thumb but have managed to keep it alive for a year now, it survived our mild winter… I’m so happy! If you don’t have fresh oregano, dry oregano will do just fine.

This dressing is full of great flavor and the fresh oregano makes it so fresh tasting. (If you don’t have fresh you can use dry oregano) I happen to love fresh oregano and have a plant outside that I keep under some shade so it doesn’t freeze in the winter or burn in the sun in the summer, I’m happy it lasts all year. Especially since I don’t have a green thumb!
I mention more info about spiral cutting HERE.
Of course, you can cut the vegetables into any shape you prefer. A mandolin will work if you want to have thinly sliced cucumbers.
