Greek Salad is very popular with my family – especially the Feta cheese ! To change things up a little, I made this Greek Salad with Marinated Onions .

Absolutely delicious ! And you would not believe the huge difference the marinated Onions make to this salad. The typical Greek Salad I usually make, contains a lot of lettuce, which I love, but my family not so much.

They were very surprised by this new version and immediately fell in love with the Greek Salad with Marinated Onions. It was a winner the first time and the second time, and I plan on making it again this weekend.

The use of different Tomatoes may not seem like a big thing, but it does have a lovely impact, not only visually but also in taste, on this Salad.

If you want to serve the Salad for lunch, only a wholewheat dinner roll is necessary, as this Greek Salad with Marinated Onions are quite filling.

Having a BBQ ? Only one other Salad is needed to complete your BBQ. In South-Africa we enjoy our braai (BBQ) all year long, and it usually consists of Boerewors (a SA sausage), Lamb Chops, Steak and more often than not, Chicken and/or other kebabs as well.

Then, to add to that, we have all the sides, salads, pap and relish (pap is a porridge made with maize meal), dinner rolls – the whole works.

This is not only for special days, it is our way of living in South-Africa – maybe not all that healthy all the time, but once a week is fine by me, and there are loads of ways to make all the dishes, or most anyway, healthy.

I love salads like this with a barbecue! In fact, I think salads are my favourite part of the barbecue! I like how you have marinated the onions as well as the addition of the brown sugar - this salad has so many great flavours going on. Pinned, yummed & will tweet. Thank you for sharing with us at the Hearth and Soul hop.

We love Greek flavors, especially feta. My kind of salad! Makes me want to break out the grill, make some Greek kabobs and serve this salad on the side.
