Simple Greek Village Salad (Horiatiki: Tomato Cucumber Salad)

  • Author: Elaine Gordon
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x
  • Diet: Vegan



Main Ingredients

  • 1 English cucumber, peeled or unpeeled
  • 2 Roma or plum tomatoes, cut into wedges 
  • 1 small red onion, chopped 
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill (or sub parsley leaves)
  • 1/4 cup diced fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup my homemade Mediterranean House Dressing (or more to taste)

Optional Add-Ins

  • 1 ripe avocado, chopped (I usually add this)
  • 1 red bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup crumbled vegan feta cheese (such as VioLife brand)
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives (this is traditionally used in this dish)


  1. Slice the peeled cucumber in half lengthwise then in cut into 1/2-inch chunks.  This salad is rustic and chunky in nature so no need to dice.  Move the cucumber half moons to a large glass mixing bowl
  2. Add chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, and herbs to the cucumber in the mixing bowl. Add any of the optional ingredients now too.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of the dressing overtop the veggies and toss well.  Taste and add more dressing if desired.  
  4. Serve well chilled.  I like to chill my ingredients in advance of assembling so I can serve immediately.


You can substitute grape or cherry tomatoes but this is not the traditional tomato variety used in Greek Village Salad.  It works just fine though and do this all the time.

Add cooked chickpeas to make this a meal.
