This time of year I love eating lightened-up and cooler sides. Anything to not use the oven in this heat, right? And this Greek vegetable salad gives me just that: a filling option that doesn’t require cooking.

I love salads like this: hearty enough to eat as a light lunch, or perfect alongside a piece of fish. It’s a fantastic little addition for these Greek chicken bowls too! Plus, it’s served cold or room temperature, so it makes a great dish for your next barbecue or outdoor party!

Recipe inspiration this round goes to my friend Sage, who’s the kind of friend that I can sit at the table while she preps dinner. This is similar to a version she made as part of an easy weeknight meal.

That’s it! If you want to add an extra kick, sprinkle some feta cheese on top.
