How To Make Vegan Greek Salad
The easy part is of course just chopping up all those fresh veggies for your Greek salad.
- We start off with chopped romaine lettuce. We used two small heads of lettuce, which was 6 cups chopped.
- Add your chopped red bell pepper.
- Sliced red onion is a great flavor match to this salad.
- Cherry tomatoes come next and they are sliced into halves.
- Then we add sliced cucumber;
- And then comes the kalamata olives – pitted. Make sure that there are no pits left behind in the olives, even if you buy them ready pitted, sometimes there might be a pit left behind that could be a nasty surprise on someones teeth!
- Toss everything up and then pour over the simple vinaigrette and toss again before adding your vegan feta.
Pro Tips for the Best Vegan Greek Salad
We used homemade vegan feta cheese. This feta is totally divine and rivals the ‘real’ thing! Seriously. But you are of course welcome to save time and use a store-bought vegan feta cheese.
We made a simple homemade vinaigrette to pour over the top of this. It’s so quick to make and a simple mix of olive oil, red wine vinegar (or you can sub another vinegar), lemon juice, crushed garlic, oregano, sea salt and black pepper. It takes minutes to make so it’s a ‘might as well’ make your own kind of situation. But again, you can use a store-bought option if you prefer.
Kalamata olives are divine in a Greek salad but you can also switch this for black olives or even green olives if you prefer.
Can You Make Vegan Greek Salad In Advance?
You can make it a few hours in advance but not longer than that. The flavors do blend wonderfully with this salad so if eaten within a few hours, it’s going to be delicious, but it’s still fresh food, so it’s not something I would plan on making too far in advance.
How Long Does Greek Salad Last?
It will last for up to two days in the fridge, but it’s going to be at its best on the day it’s made.
You will love this Vegan Greek Salad! It is:
- Veggie Packed

Keep leftovers in the fridge and enjoy within two days.
