Greek salad is such a classic. The ingredients are simple, fresh and go together so well. Nowadays it’s fairly easy to replace feta cheese with a vegan version of it as there are options to buy that resemble the taste of it. I decided to put my version of this salad in a sandwich for occasions when you don’t want to eat a whole bowl of vegetables but still have a taste of this beautiful salad. I also like to spiralize the cucumber in the salad because it elevates the whole experience.
You can also add a spread of choice to the sandwich. Spread some hummus or baba ganoush on the bottom and perhaps also on the upper part of the bread. When you want to eat a whole salad instead of a sandwich, just increase the quantity of the ingredients for the salad and place a piece of bread as a side. If you wish to make a Cypriot Village salad, just add some chopped romaine lettuce to the mix. The classic greek salad has onions in it but I left them out because I don’t like to eat them that much. Feel free to personalise this sandwich your way.
