Grilled Garlic Baguettes with Greek Salad.
Oh how we adore this greek salad garlic bread! Grilled garlic baguettes are topped with a marinated greek salad, feta cheese and fresh herbs. So refreshing and delicious!
I’ve found the meal I’m going to enjoy all season!
My mouth is watering just looking at these photos again! Super crunchy, garlicky baguettes grilled until toasty and topped with the most flavorful salad filled with tomatoes, sweet peppers, cucumbers, olives and more.
Sign me up, I could eat this every single day.
Lots of G’s up there in the best way possible, all full of things I love. Grilled anything. Garlic, of course. And greek salad, which I could enjoy on repeat.
Sounds delicious if I do say so myself. YESSSS.
So, the garlic bread! I have a recipe for the best ever garlic bread in Everyday Dinners. It’s outstanding and it all starts with my garlic confit! I love to use garlic confit in just about anything – as a spread, in dressings, salads and more – but it really shines on garlic bread.
If you don’t have garlic confit (you can see how I make it here) or you just don’t want to make it, you can either roast garlic or even use finely minced raw garlic. The main thing is that we are smashing that garlic into salted butter and spreading it alllll over the baguettes. Yep. Best move ever.
Eddie lives for garlic bread and I often make this in the summer with our sunday meals. To me, an ideal meal has grilled vegetables (or roasted) and garlic bread, and I top the bread with the vegetables and… ugh! It’s just so delicious.
Also, do you think past me from a decade ago is thinking “YOUR IDEAL MEAL INCLUDES VEGETABLES?!”
It’s true. I still can’t get over it either.
The marinated salad is absolutely divine. You can put anything you love in here, but I like to use ingredients that can last in the fridge at least overnight. This gets better the longer it sits because the veggies soak up the briney, vinegary dressing. I eat this alone, over salad, or my favorite way… over bread.
That’s all it is! Grill the baguettes. Top with the salad. Sprinkle on some feta and maybe some herbs. Then eat.
The crunch of the bread combined with the tart flavor of the salad – oh my word. Dream texture!
You can also add in some crushed red pepper or even jalapeños if you like a bit of heat.
Warm weather meal on repeat.
Greek Salad Garlic Bread
Grilled Garlic Baguettes with Greek Salad
- 4 mini cucumbers, peeled and chopped
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes
- 1 cup sliced mini sweet peppers
- ½ cup pitted kalamata olives
- ½ red onion, thinly sliced
- ¼ cup red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced or pressed
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- kosher salt and pepper
- ½ cup olive oil
- feta cheese, for sprinkling
- fresh herbs, for sprinkling
- Note - you can use roasted garlic or garlic confit for this butter which is what I do most often.
- Mash the garlic into the butter with a fork. You can make this fancier by adding in fresh or dried herbs if you’d like! You can also add another pinch of salt if desired.
- Place the cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, onion and olives in a bowl. In a measuring cup, whisk together the vinegar, lemon juice, honey, garlic, oregano and a big pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil until emulsified. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss well. At this point, you can refrigerate until you’re ready to use them, or use them right away!
- Heat the grill to the highest setting. Spread the garlic butter on the cut sides of the baguette. Once the grill is hot, place the baguette butter-side down on the grill for 2 minutes. Flip and grill for another 2 to 3 minutes until toasted and golden.
- Serve the marinated salad on top of the warm garlic bread. Sprinkle with feta cheese and fresh herbs. Enjoy!
