Arugula Greek Salad – A quick and easy solution to what’s for lunch or supper! So flavorful and easy to make ahead for even easier meals!

Arugula Greek Salad Recipe from

Throughout the summer and even into the fall, I love to make a big bowl of salad and keep it in the refrigerator for super quick and easy lunches and suppers. And lately, this arugula greek salad has been one of my absolute favorites!

It works great for piling into bowls as is or to add a piece of grilled chicken or fish to go along with it for an even more filling meal.

Thankfully, this is one of those salads that just gets better and better. The flavors meld together to make one more flavorful salad from one day to the next. 

One trick that I love to use with this salad is to go ahead and portion it into individual serving sizes for a grab and go solution for taking lunch with me or even for a serving solution for a picnic. Glass jars or deli containers make it super handy and certainly help me with answering the what’s for lunch question!

Now do you see why I love it so much? I think you will, too!

Here’s my Arugula Greek Salad recipe. Make it soon!

    I made this tonight for a birthday meal with a Greek theme for my step-dad who loves arugula. We have it growing in the garden so I was thrilled to use it. Tasted great. Everyone loved it. I will make it again.

      I make this all the time. It’s the best greek style salad I have ever had, much less made. I love the arugula and the dressing is the best. Friends ask me to bring it for pot lucks. I couldn’t believe most of the dressing spices are dried so I always have them on hand.

      Thanks, Joann.
