Greek salad are one of my absolute favorites! I love a giant bowl of salad with sweet peppers, bright tomatoes, briny olives, and a simple garlicky red wine dressing. It’s a delicious and refreshing salad that I could eat every single day!
I made this salad for a potluck, and it was a HUGE hit. This salad is loaded with so many delicious ingredients that no one noticed any dairy was missing. You can use a vegan feta cheese, which is a delicious substitute for traditional feta. Serve with pita bread and dig in!

A Fantastic Vegan Pot Luck Salad
I will always be the person bringing veggies to the party! And this pot luck vegan Greek salad makes it super easy to do just that. I love giant loaded salads, especially when there are so many delicious vegetables to add. I made this salad on request for a Super Bowl party, and it got rave reviews! My other favorite Game Day recipe is my Oven Baked Veggie Kabobs. These recipes are perfect examples that plant-based food does NOT have to be boring.

- Mixed Greens for the base: but you can use any lettuce or spinach that you like for a salad base
- Chopped Veggies: carrots, tomatoes, olives, roasted red pepper, artichoke hearts! This is super versatile so you can swap out any veggies you have on hand and add them to your salad.
- No Salt Added / Low Sodium Chickpeas: one of my favorite pantry staple ingredients! You can use canned chickpeas (I’d highly recommend a low sodium or no salt version)
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity Zoe olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & I like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry. For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
- Red Wine Vinegar: I used red wine vinegar for the marinade to give this dish a really nice bright Mediterranean flavor – for that, this red wine vinegar is my go-to!
- Oregano: a spice I always put in my salad dressings, marinades, or soups! Dried oregano has a bright and earthy flavor, and goes so well with the vegetables.
- Vegan Feta: yep, and it’s SO delicious! This vegan feta cheese will have dairy lovers unable to believe it’s plant-based.
I love all the colors and flavors in this salad! The red peppers are beautiful with the yellow carrots, purple olives, and deep green lettuce leaves. It looks really impressive to make, but couldn’t be easier! If you don’t have the exact ingredients below, feel free to substitute for any produce you have in the fridge or pantry.
Easy Homemade Greek Salad Dressing Recipe
I learned from making my Greek Pasta Salad, that nothing beats a homemade dressing! I used a similar dressing recipe to my Greek pasta salad, but scaled it down a bit. The herbs, garlic, agave, and red wine vinegar give the salad a sweet zing! The dressing takes 5 minutes to put together, so I would highly recommend making it yourself (rather than store bought). I’m a fan of making cooking easier, but nothing is better than a delicious homemade salad dressing.

That looks so delicious 🙂 I have 10 acres surrounded by chemical wheat farmers. For the last 20 years I’ve watch them destroy hundreds of trees and blame it on disease. How they cannot see the spray is giving the tree disease I guess it’s no different then the sprays giving kids cancer. One year on the plant base And I have gotten myself out of bed after years of multiple US doctors and testing with no help I had to hear it from another country my country is poisoning me to death. Have reached out to the state for help but the truth is farmers have a license to kill. People animals and the environment. It is wonderful to see somebody getting to enjoy the land they paid for. Keep up the great work
Wow, so glad that going plant-based has helped you! We love our land… we have a lot of small family farms in the area but nothing too huge or industrial. One thing we have struggled with here is the county doing aerial spraying for mosquitos in the summer… which makes me so nervous as a beekeeper! They say that it doesn’t affect bees because they are in their hives at night, but the bees could easily pick up the pesticides on the flowers the next morning and bring them back into the hive. We are doing the best we can!
