Classic Greek salad combines tangy olives, salty feta, sweet tomatoes and cool cucumber. It is perfect on its own, as a side dish to griddled meats or stirred through couscous and other grains. There is no cooking involved so it’s really just a chopping and assembly job so it’s great for a quick snack and perfect for picnic hampers and lunchboxes.

Ingredients

  • 200g pack of feta cheese, drained, cut into cubes
  • 4 salad tomatoes, diced
  • ½ a cucumber peeled, quartered and diced
  • 50g black pitted olives, halved
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 wholemeal pitta bread

  • Combine all of the ingredients except the pitta in bowl. Season.

  • Take each pitta and cut in half widthways. Using your fingers, gently prise apart the bread until you have a pocket. Fill each pocket with the mixed Greek salad and serve.

Top Tip

For extra crunch, try grilling the pitta beforehand, either pop them into the toaster for a minute or heat them under the grill.
