If you thought the Tik Tok Feta pasta was all the rage, you have to try this roasted greek salad. I made this for my mom and uncle when I was home in Ohio and after one taste they both said “put this on the blog!” It’s super easy and a great way to make a quick, healthy meal. It’s not the most picturesque after the veggies are roasted but the flavors will win you over in the first bite, I promise!
ready to go in the oven!
What I love about this recipe is that it’s super easy to scale. Making dinner for just yourself? Use less veggies. Prepping for a big family meal? More veggies. Simple as that.
What You’ll Need:
*for the veggies, use as much or as little as you like
a block of feta (the Israeli feta from Trader Joes is my favorite!)
1/3 cup olive oil (more if desired)
2-3 cloves minced garlic
The How To:
- Preheat the oven to 475° F degrees
- Add halved tomatoes, roughly chopped peppers and feta (cut into strips) on your baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, combine olive oil, minced garlic, chopped oregano and salt to taste and mix. Pour about a third of the mixture over the tomatoes, peppers and feta and toss. Add extra oregano if you’re feeling festive.
- Halve your lemons and place them on your baking sheet
- Place sheet in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes
- While the tomato/pepper/feta mixture is cooking, slice the red onion and cut the cucumber into bitesize pieces
- Once the roasted vegetables and feta come out of the oven, squeeze the roasted lemon juice into the olive oil mixture – this is your dressing- voila!
- Add your cucumber and red onion to the roasted veggies & feta and toss to combine
- Drizzle a little of the lemony, herby, garlic olive oil on top to serve and…
yes you can totally add more feta after the veggies are roasted!
Note: You can totally roast chickpeas in this recipe too, the only watchout I’ll give is the chickpeas need to be almost completely dry before you roast. Otherwise the excess water just makes them a little mushy. Just add them with the peppers, tomatoes and feta before roasting- yum!
