Greek Salad Sandwich



If you love a Greek Salad, then you'll love this sandwich. Crisp Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, kalamata olives, feta cheese and red onion on ciabatta bread with a touch of oil and red wine vinegar. 

Some of you have been asking me for more sandwich recipes to pack up for work, school or to eat on the road. This is a great sandwich, it's meatless but has plenty of flavor from the olives and feta. You can even add some sun dried tomatoes.


Other sandwiches I love that don't require heating up Egg Scallion and Tomato Sandwich, Tomato Roasted Pepper and Mozzarella Sandwich, Prosciutto Arugula and Balsamic Sandwich, Heirloom Tomato Sandwich, Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Avocado and Tomato, and my favorite... Roast Beef, Arugula and Shaved Parmesan. More sandwiches are coming soon, what are some of your favorite sandwiches?

Servings: 4 • Size: 1 sandwich • Old Points: 6 pts • Points+: 8 pts
Calories: 291 • Fat: 8 g • Protein: 8.4 g • Carbs: 46 g • Fiber: 1.5 g • Sugar: 0.5 g
Sodium: 697 mg (without salt)

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 tbsp Kalamata olives, minced
  • 4 thin slices red onion
  • coarse salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 tbsp crumbled feta
  • 12 oz ciabatta bread, cut into 4 pieces
  • 8 Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced


Directions:

In a small bowl whisk red wine vinegar, and olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Add chopped olives and red onions set aside. I like to add the onions to the vinegar, this mellows out the sharpness of the onion, but completely optional.


Spread the olive mixture on 4 slices bread. Top with lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, and red onion; season with salt and pepper. Top with feta, close and cut sandwich in half.

    2. Since you live in a much less "backwater" type place than I do, I have no idea. ;-) However, they are delicious and you should try one with a quickness! :-)

  7. whenever I make a greek vinaigrette I add a splash of lemon juice to the red wine vinegar and olive oil / salt and pepper blend and some dried oregano. It just adds a little more depth of flavor to the dressing without extra points.

  10. This looks great, looking forward to more sandwich recipes! I've been making stuff of your website for about 2 1/2 months now. I've lost 20 lbs! You make it so easy, thanks for what you do!

  11. Just saw the Greek sandwhich recipe and it looks SOO yummy! I am currently doing weight watchers and wondered if the 6 points that are listed include the bread though? I hope so ;-)

    1. It's 8 points plus, yes with the bread. The old point system is 6 points.

  12. This sounds super delicious, but I bet it would be a lot more satisfying with a slice of roasted red pepper - I love them in my veggie sandwiches because they make them more filling without too many more calories!

  13. Love that you turned this awesome salad into a sandwich! :)

  14. I know you are a Trader Joes's shopper and I was very much looking forward to trying their new greek feta dressing but was disappointed about the amount of fat in it. This is a great way to have that greek dressing taste without all the fat. And, I LOVE LOVE ciabatta.

  15. Where do you get that bread? It looks so good!

  16. This sandwich looks delicious. I can't wait to try it! Also, I don't know how I missed the roast beef sandwich. I'm a huge fan.

  17. Oh, this looks so good! It's on of those "why didn't I think of that" moments.

  18. What kind of PB&J would you suggest for low points? There are lots varietes of each? I would love to see your take on it.

  19. I love love Reubens, but they leave much to be desired as far as calories/fat go. Also, my mother-in-law makes an awesome chicken salad recipe with dried cranberries and plain almonds. It's so perfect - adds a little tartness and some crunch!

  20. I like the sound of using Greek salad flavours in a sandwich!

  21. Looks delicious! I have often stuffed leftover salads into pita halves. They make a great portable meal. Could also work with
    Cobb salad, club sandwiches, etc.

  22. This looks so delicious and big! I might half it and add some chicken :D Delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is so good! I added a little oregano to the dressing. I also put the feta in the dressing which secured it to the bread. Yum!

  24. I made this tonight. I think having really good/fresh bread is probably key. Really yummy!

  25. crazy, i thought i found a recipe here for a wrap including tuna and roasted red peppers and tortilla factory wrap. SOund familiar anyone ?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I just had (a slightly modified) version for lunch and it was INCREDIBLE!! I normally wouldn't comment since I did modify it (I don't like olives so I left them out and used some sliced roasted red peppers instead, I also used slightly less vinegar), but vegetarian sandwiches are hard to find. This was SOOOO good and pretty unique! Thanks so much for an amazing new lunch recipe! This is a keeper for sure!

  27. This sandwich is so up my alley, is it 8 points plus for the whole sandwich or 8 points plus for a fourth of the sandwich? I'm confused but hopeful!

    1. The whole sandwich for 1 serving is 8 pts.

  28. I made the Greek Salad Sandwich today, but instead of using bread I made them into lettuce wraps. I also decreased the oil to just 1 tsp and increased the red onion and tomato slightly. It was really nice. My son, who usually doesn't like olives, even said it was "surprisingly good." :)

  29. This sandwich transcends all awesomeness! It's especially nice when tomatoes are in season. Surprisingly filling too. I'm glad you floated it back to the top. I have added the ingredients to my list.

  30. Eating this right now. So good. I also added a very thin spread of sun dried tomato humus. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Your instructions are VERY confusing!! So, the red onion is added to the olives & spices & oil, yes? But then at the end you say "top with onion"...so top with additional onion?? Because i assume the olives & onions have been added with the spice/oil mix already, yes?

    & just out of curiosity: why are you cutting the sandwich in half again? so, you will actually end up with 8 mini sandwiches then, correct?

    Thanks so much for clearing this up!! 8-)
