TikTok Green Greek Goddess Salad
A big shoutout to Melissa for turning us all onto this wonderful recipe. It’s kind of a salad/ coleslaw/ fine chopped dip. It could be categorized in any of those. But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what you call it. What matters is the taste. Let’s talk about that…
I used Melissa’s recipe as my base but of course, just HAD to put my Greek touch on it. My substitute includes feta cheese instead of her nutritional yeast. And I added in fresh dill and green olives.
Make sure you have some tortilla chips in your pantry when you make this. Disclaimer: it is highly addictive.

Green Greek Goddess Salad
- 1 small head green cabbage
- 1 large cucumber
- 4 scallions, fine chop
- 1/2 cup green olives, fine chop
- 1/4 cup dill, chopped
- 2 lemons juiced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tbs rice vinegar
- 1 shallot
- 1 large clove garlic
- 1/3 cup chives
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1 cup basil
- 1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
- salt and pepper to taste
- The most important part of this salad, dip is to micro dice the salad ingredients. The best way to do this for the cabbage and cucumber is to thinly slice in one direction, and then turn the bunch 90° and finely chop again.
- Add all of the dressing ingredients in the order listed above to the food processor. Pulse for about 1 minute or until the consistency is mostly smooth. Pour it on your salad and toss well to coat.
- Serve with tortilla chips to scoop or as a traditional salad.
I found this recipe through the Hungry Happens Instagram and definitely prefer this version to the vegan because I love feta! Delicious and so filling and refreshing.
Hi Shannon, SO happy you enjoyd the Greek version! Thank you for rating the dish too!
OMG!!! This is simply amazing!! It is hard for me to find good fresh herbs but just happened to have freeze dried on hand and they worked beautifully! I made another salad if yours this morning with the Greek orzo but I used farro in place of the orzo and it was sooooo good!!
Hi Lori! That’s a beautiful thing! Happy you enjoyed the dishes!!
This is everything to me! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Hi Gwen! So happy you’re loving this recipe! Thank you!
Awesome mix of vegetables, but the dressing was way too sour for me. I’ll try this again and skip the vinegar.
Hi Jane, Yes, you can definitely tailor the dressing to your palate. Hope you like it next time!!!
My family doesn’t like walnuts. Can I just omit them or do you think another nut would work?
Hi Gretchen! You can use pistachios or pine nuts instead!
