This Greek Squash Salad is just a good old Greek salad, but simpler and with a little twist: summer squash (or zucchini)! And it’s a little bit more delicate, too. Instead of cutting the vegetables into big chunks, for this salad they are thinly sliced. I like having them finely sliced, specially the onion and the squash, because considering they all go in raw I find them more pleasant that way. I obviously love the traditional chunky take just as much, but this version is more… have I said delicate?

Greek Squash Salad

I know summer is long gone and summer squashes are not a thing anymore, but zucchini will do just fine. The squash adds a nice texture to the salad but it doesn’t take away from the authentic Greek taste. Add different varieties of tomatoes if you can, that adds more flavor, too.

I make so many salads during the summer, but comes fall I kind of forget about them, so here’s a reminder to add a side salad to your fall meals! Start with this one 😉
