Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped oregano leaves, divided
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 English hothouse cucumber, halved vertically, thinly sliced
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced into half moons
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup pitted, halved Kalamata olives
  • 1 large Haas avocado, ¼-inch cubed

Directions

  1. Whisk together vinegar, 1 tablespoon oregano, and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Slowly pour in olive oil, whisking continuously until emulsified.
  2. Add cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, olives, remaining oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss to coat.
  3. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve, at least 10 minutes.
  4. Gently toss in avocado and serve immediately.
Mealthy tip:

Add grilled chicken to make this salad a complete meal! English hothouse cucumbers have a thinner skin and much smaller and fewer seeds than the traditional cucumber. They don't need to be "de-seeded" and can be sliced and served just as they are!

Great salad! We tossed grilled shrimp in it for a light dinner. Definitely will make this again. The only thing I might change for next time is adding another avocado.

I paired this Greek salad with za'atar spiced chicken, it was amazing. I also used two avocados, instead of one. You can never have too much avo on a salad, am I right? Simple to throw together, even the homemade dressing.

This was a side dish for my grilled chicken pitas. I've never added avacado before and loved it! I topped with feta.

Very good salad. After years of not like avocado, this is not probably one of my favorite dishes. The dressing is so good, I put it on everything.

Tasty, tangy, and quick salad. This went very well with my grilled chicken kebabs. I sprinkled a little feta on top to round out this salad.
