Greek Salsa

Jul 11, 2012

Looking for the perfect healthy appetizer?  Well look no further.  I made this tasty treat for the 4th of July and it was off the hook good.   I knew we would be eating hot dogs and hamburgers which are pretty heavy so I wanted to make a light and healthy appetizer.  This is packed full of flavor and it is all veggies.   If you are a Greek Salad lover like me then this will be your new favorite snack.  This would also be amazing as bruschetta served on fresh baguettes!  Serve with Pita Chips and Bon Appetit.


3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups diced ripe plum tomatoes (about 3)

3/4 cup diced, peeled, and seeded cucumber (about 1/2 a cucumber)

1/4 cup minced red onion

1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic

1 small yellow bell pepper, seeded and finely diced

1 cup (4 oz) crumbled feta cheese

1/3 pitted kalamata olives, finely chopped

2-3 pickled hot cherry peppers stemmed and minced

Combine all Ingredients in a bowl and mix gently. Serve immediately with pita chips.
