Greek Salsa


Salsa is a cool, refreshing, light, summer treat.  I decided to change up my regular version of fresh salsa into a Greek salsa.  It’s full of color and flavor.  Try it served with pita chips or even as a side dish to some chicken. 


Greek Salsa

1 1/2 cups diced ripe tomatoes, about 2-3 tomatoes

1/3 cup kalamata black olives, seed removed and olive cut in half

1 cup purple onion, chopped

1/2 c. artichoke, cut into smaller pieces

1/2 c. feta cheese, crumbled

1 (14.5 oz) can chickpeas, washed and drained

1 T. olive oil

1 tsp. balsamic vinegar

1 tsp. garlic

1 1/2 T. oregano

2 T. fresh, chopped parsley


Combine all ingredients in a bowl and toss gently.  Serve the salsa with pita chips.
