I love a good homemade salsa and I’ll pretty much take it however I can get it! There’s something about fresh vegetable (and sometimes fruit) and all those great flavors that make fresh salsa so much better than store-bought and seriously easy to make. See what I mean with my fresh Fresh Pineapple Salsa or Black Bean and Corn Salsa.

How to Make Greek Salsa

Sometimes it’s fun to mix things up a little. Stray a bit for the traditional Mexican flavors that you typically find in salsa. Don’t get me wrong, I love it and if there’s a bowl of it in front of me I will keep on eating it. But there’s something about Greek flavors that lend themselves beautifully to a totally addictive, and easy Greek salsa recipe.

Of course, I had to include tomatoes, I mean this is still a salsa! But then I added cool and refreshing cucumber, a little red onion for flavor, briny Kalamata olives, salty feta cheese, lemon juice for brightness and fresh oregano. So many amazing flavors in one place. I serve them with crispy, sea salt pita chips, to keep with our theme, but this would also be great with tortilla chips.

  1. Chop your veggies. You want to chop them pretty small so it’s easy to grab a scoop and get all the flavors together.
  2. Mix. Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir together, including the dressing.
  3. Taste and adjust. Add salt and pepper, and more of any veggie or cheese you like.

Tips to make this Greek Salsa Recipe

  • Can I use black olives in place of Kalamata olives? Sure! Just make sure to drain the can first and chop them well.
  • Why are you using Roma tomatoes? Because they tend to have fewer seeds, and you’ll get more tomato-bang for your buck. You can totally use another variety of tomatoes, just chop them up well.
  • Do I need to peel the cucumber? No, unless you prefer yours peeled.
  • What if I want more or less of something? As with most savory recipes, I strongly encourage you to taste it and adjust accordingly. If you prefer more or less of something change it up! This is a super-flexible recipe.
