Whipped feta Greek salad toast is a twist on a Greek salad like you’ve never seen before. Creamy whipped feta cheese on crispy sourdough with a fresh and flavorful Greek salad on top — each bite is bursting with incredible flavors!
This past May Rob and I went to Greece and almost two months later, I still can’t stop thinking about the amazing Greek salads we had on the islands! Cold, crisp and incredibly fresh, the traditional Greek salads of Greece definitely lived up to the hype.
We would get one almost every day for lunch along with a crisp glass of Assyrtiko (Greek white wine) and tomato fritters, another classic Greek dish you’d find on any restaurant menu across the islands.
All of the Greek salads in Greece were incredibly fresh and flavorful and always dressed in really good olive oil, of course. We ate our way through the islands of Mykonos, Santorini and Crete and for me that’s what traveling is all about.
Experiencing different cultures and traditions of a place through their food is my favorite part about traveling. Greece was a magical place to be able to do that and I’m already looking forward to going back soon!
This whipped feta toast is inspired by the beautiful islands, lovely people, and breathtaking sights of Greece. Close your eyes while you take a bite and pretend you’re eating it seaside with the ocean breeze in your hair and no cares in the world!
The best thing about Greek salads is that they really do get better the next day once the flavors have really married together with the olive oil and salt. In any instance you could definitely make the Greek salad in advance and or enjoy the leftovers the next day, no problem!
This Greek-inspired toast recipe is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a dinner appetizer. The salad remind me of a pico de gallo, except with Greek salad ingredients!

Tips for Making an Incredible Greek Salad
Whether you’re making a Greek salad to use in this recipe or just as a side salad anytime, use these tips to make it extra delicious!
- Salt the salad ingredients. Be sure to generously salt the tomatoes, olives, red onion, green pepper, cucumbers, and olives as you toss everything together. The salt helps to draw out the water and flavor molecules which allows move flavor to seep in.
- Use a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil. Don’t skimp when it comes to olive oil. Make sure it’s extra-virgin olive oil as there are many different blends on store shelves that are not 100% olive oil! I love a slightly spicy, flavorful extra-virgin olive oil.
- Use high-quality feta (not the crumbles!). Once you start buying feta in a block, you’ll never go back to crumbles! Whole Foods, Trader Joes and Costco all have great options.
- Opt for Kalamata olives. Grab Kalamata olives in brine versus a canned option.
- Look for the freshest produce you can find. If you’re able to grab tomatoes, cucumbers, pepper and red onion from your local farmers market, I promise it will take the flavors and freshness of this salad up a notch!
