Recipe Variations

This Greek salsa is pretty awesome as it is, but you can easily make a few swaps and additions to make it your own.

  • Not got feta? Cotija or goats cheese make good substitutes and fresh sliced halloumi will work too.
  • Add in other veggies. A finely sliced bell pepper will add a great crunch.
  • Add some herbs. Stir in a teaspoon of dried herbs, oregano would work great. Or, mix in some fresh parsley.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you use green or black olives in this salsa?

I used kalamata olives in this recipe. They have a much more juicy taste, are more meaty and they are less salty compared to black olives. You can use green or black olives in this recipe, but, for the same reason you should use extra virgin olive oil rather than regular, the end result is much more balanced and flavorful.

How long does it keep?

This recipe will keep well, covered in the fridge, for around 3 days. Be sure to keep the bowl covered so that the feta cheese doesn’t dry out. The tomatoes and cucumbers will start to release their juices while sitting, you can drain this off if you like.

Serving Suggestions

This Greek salsa is great served up as an appetizer dip with crackers or pita chips for liberal scooping. It’s also great served over baked chicken or fish and will liven up even the most basic of meals. It’s a great addition for picnics, BBQs and potlucks.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Cut the tomatoes, olives and cucumber into very small pieces. This is meant to be served as a dip, so you want it to be scoop-able.
  • Use the freshest ingredients you can for the best flavor. Don’t be tempted to use bottled lemon juice and use a good quailty extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
