This Daily Mediterranean Salad recipe is quick and easy to make, tossed with a simple Greek vinaigrette, and can easily double as a side salad or main dish.
This salad is perfectly balanced with so many of the Mediterranean flavours I love most — peppery arugula, hearty chickpeas, cool cucumbers, smoky roasted reds, tangy feta cheese and a super-simple herby Greek vinaigrette that brings it all together. It is easy to throw together in just 10 or 15 minutes.

The daily Mediterranean salad ingredients:
To make this Mediterranean Salad recipe daily, you will need:
Greens: I love using hearty arugula for this salad, but any of your favourite salad greens will work well too.
Fresh Veggies: I just thinly sliced some red onion and English cucumber, but feel free to add in any extra veggies that you are craving or have on hand.
Roasted Red Peppers: I diced about half a jar of store-bought roasted reds, but feel free to roast your peppers or use fresh bell peppers instead.
Feta Cheese: Lots of it, please! ♡
Chickpeas: One can, rinsed and drained, to add some extra heartiness to this salad.
Greek Vinaigrette: Made easily with pantry staples, including olive oil, red wine vinegar, Dijon, garlic (or garlic powder), dried oregano, salt and pepper.
