Feta cheese is lower in calories than other cheese, making it a perfect way to dial-up flavors guilt-free.

These feta salad recipes are not only great for a satisfying lunch or dinner but are great for BBQs as well. 

1. Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad 

This tomato, cucumber, and feta salad can’t be topped.

Cucumbers and tomatoes are the easiest vegetables to grow in your garden, and you likely have more than you need.

Then, toss them in a simple lemon and olive oil dressing (infused with plenty of garlic). Adding feta to this side dials up the flavors to an 11.

Romaine lettuce is insanely crispy and pairs perfectly with feta cheese.

The crisp romaine lettuce leaves and creamy feta cheese work well as a side or a main dish.

This salad also includes fresh radishes, peppers, carrots, and cucumbers for added crunch. 

To marry the flavors of the veggies together, drizzle with olive oil and vinegar.

To elevate this refreshing salad to a main course, throw in shredded chicken or chickpeas.

3. Greek Salad

Feta cheese and Greek salads pair together like peanut butter and jelly.

What is it about a Greek salad that is so satisfying? It’s the feta cheese.

The added cheese, kalamata olives, lemon, and fresh mint bring all these beautiful ingredients together. 

It’s bright and flavorful without feeling overly heavy.

Nothing beats the classic Greek salad if you want massive flavor without the calories. 

4. Easy Greek Tossed Green Salad 

What’s better than a Greek salad? A Greek salad that comes together in 15 minutes.

This easy Greek-tossed garden salad comes together in a snap, and it’s a great way to celebrate the flavors of summer. 

Don’t worry about perfectly chopped veggies in this salad.

You can opt for a rough chop to keep the pieces large, and the punchy vinaigrette helps to fuse all of those flavors.

This salad is bright and tart and a perfect way to indulge guilt-free. 

5. Israeli Salad with Feta 

This classic Israeli salad is found on just about every menu in Israel.

It’s simple, packed with flavor, and the perfect pairing with a heavy meal. 

It infuses crunchy veggies like cucumbers, Roma tomatoes, and scallions.

The homemade vinaigrette incorporates savoy herbal notes from fresh parsley, mint leaves, oregano, and lemon juice. 

It’s super simple and comes together in a snap.

6. Baby Lettuces with Feta, Strawberries, and Almonds 

This bright and tasty salad feels like summer on a plate.

If you don’t often add fruit to your salad, you may want to rethink that decision.

The sweetness from the strawberries fused with the tanginess from the strawberries makes this dish light yet indulgent. 

The added almonds infuse a savoy crunch and an extra dose of healthy protein.

It’s perfect as a side dish and works well as a main course.

Add a little shredded chicken or salmon, and you have a delicious dinner that’s a nutritional powerhouse.

7. Mediterranean Lentil Salad 

Finding good vegetarian salads that are satisfying is a little tricky.

Sure, most salads are vegetarian, but they aren’t exactly filling.

This Mediterranean salad includes a healthy serving of lentils to keep you from snacking after meal time. 

The trick to this salad is to chop all of your veggies small, so every forkful packs a flavorful punch.

It’s crunchy and delicious, infused with cucumbers, tomatoes, fresh herbs, and feta cheese.

Pair with perfectly cooked lentils for added protein and dress with a light vinaigrette. 

8. Watermelon Salad with Feta

When watermelons come into season at my local market, I do a little happy dance.

As the only person in my house who loves watermelon, eating a whole one is a daunting task.

That’s why I love this watermelon salad with feta. It’s fresh, crunchy, and a great way to use that giant watermelon in your fridge!

Watermelon on its own is slightly sweet, so it pairs so well with feta cheese.

It blends sweet and savory flavors perfectly, and the additional herbs and vinaigrette amplify those delicious flavors. 

9. Feta Radish Salad

Fire up your Instagram! There’s no denying that this feta radish salad is gorgeous.

Thinly sliced radishes are like a work of art. They’re slightly peppery and ultra crunchy and pair perfectly with tangy, creamy feta cheese. 

Garnish it with fresh herbs and a little lemon vinaigrette, and you have a show-stopping side dish.

It’s a perfect side to bring to your next potluck if you aim to impress.

Plus, it comes together in a snap and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. 

10. Chickpea Salad with Feta 

When eating vegetarian, chickpeas are my go-to protein. They’re high in fiber and protein and low in fat.

They have an earthy taste that’s slightly nutty and pairs perfectly with tangy feta cheese. 

What’s great about this chickpea salad is that it’s packed with flavor and only uses a few ingredients.

Dump your chickpeas into a bowl and toss with chopped peppers, feta, and fresh herbs.

It’s delicious enough to eat without dressing, but you can always add a light lemon vinaigrette to amplify those flavors. 

11. Greek Kale Salad with Lemon Olive Oil Dressing

Everyone knows that kale makes for one of the best salad bases out there.

It’s crunchy, earthy, and the most nutritious leafy green vegetables at the supermarket.

This recipe is great for your next cookout. It’s bright, impossibly crunchy, and the added feta cheese makes it hard to resist. 

12. Spinach Pear and Feta Salad 

Step aside dull salads.

If you’re tired of ice burg lettuce paired with the same old salad staples, this spinach, pear, and feta salad is a breath of fresh air. 

It uses a spinach base for a slightly sweet crunch and layers with pear, feta cheese, and walnuts.

These unconventional salad ingredients marry perfectly with a zesty vinaigrette. 

13. Tomato Watermelon Greek Salad 

Cucumbers are great in a Greek salad, but they bring a light crunch without much flavor.

Swapping out cucumber for fresh watermelon adds the same amount of crunch with a slightly sweet kick. 

Watermelon is a perfect addition to this classic Greek salad because it elevates those super salty flavors.

The feta cheese, olives, and tomatoes are tangy and acidic, while the watermelon is slightly sweet. 

14. Greek Quinoa Salad 

Hearty and salad are not two words that often pair well together.

However, adding a healthy dose of filling quinoa to this flavorful garden salad will keep you from snacking. 

It packs all of the robust flavors of a Greek salad, like kalamata olives, tomatoes, fresh herbs, and feta cheese.

Instead of a salad base, a filling portion of quinoa takes its place. It’s an excellent salad for a hectic weeknight or a potluck. 

15. Greek Pasta Salad  

Want to be the breakaway star at your next potluck or cookout?

Store-bought potato salad will take a backseat to this flavorful Greek pasta salad. 

What’s great about this dish is that it infuses the crunchy textures of Greek salad and pairs them with a satisfying pasta base.

It’s bright and summery and not as heavy as classic potato salad. 

16. Arugula Salad with Feta 

On its own, arugula is tart, peppery, and slightly bitter. Pair it with fresh veggies and feta cheese to use those rich ingredients.

It comes together in a snap and goes perfectly with a grilled chicken or fish. 

What makes this salad stand out from the pack is the addition of a tart vinaigrette.

Instead of classic lemon and oil, this vinaigrette infuses balsamic vinegar for a tart and slightly sweet finish. Garnish it with feta cheese, and dig in!

18. Cantaloupe Melon Salad With Cucumber & Feta 

This simple salad is a great lunch option.

Cantaloupe is often dismissed as a filler fruit in a fruit salad but takes center stage in this bright and flavorful dish. 

The sweetness from the cantaloupe pairs perfectly with crunchy cucumbers, and the addition of feta cheese adds a salty and creamy flavor.

Garnish it with fresh herbs like mint and a drizzle of lime juice for an acidic kick.

Using wild rice in this dish transforms this light salad into a complete meal that is great with or without any added proteins.

The veggies are nice and crisp, the wild rice is hearty and filling, and it earns a bright crunch from pomegranate seeds. 

22. Blood Orange Arugula Salad with Feta

This blood orange arugula salad with feta almost looks too good to eat.

The brightness from the blood oranges and deep purple tones of red onion and olives looks like something from a magazine.

It may look impressive, but it’s super simple to recreate. 

The key to this salad lies in the blood oranges. They offer a bright acid pop of flavor that doesn’t require salad dressing.

The tartness from the olives and feta cheese lifts the flavors of this dish for something unique and impossibly flavorful.

Summer always gets all of the good salads. However, this autumn-inspired salad dish will make you forget all about soup!

Infused with rich and hearty flavors, you get all of the fall flavors without turning on the stove. 

For the base of this salad, swap out lettuce for bulgar.
