This low fodmap Greek salad is fresh, flavourful, and a great low fodmap salad for anyone on the SIBO diet or low fodmap diet. Greek salad has always been one of my favorite salads, so when I made it the other day without onion, I thought this is the perfect low fodmap salad that everyone needs to make.
Something about chunky, crisp low fodmap vegetables mixed with creamy and rich feta and olives is so yummy. I made this Greek salad with the tops of green onion instead of red onion, which is high fodmap. I love green onion over red onion anyways as it doesn’t leave you with onion breath and is not overpowering.
Using low fodmap green onions in this Greek SIBO salad adds just the right amount of flavor without overwhelming your taste buds with raw onion. I don’t know about you, but raw red or white onion is not my thing.
I seasoned this low fodmap Greek salad with dried oregano, an excellent spice for IBS and SIBO, as it inhibits the growth of pathogenic and opportunistic bacteria. Plus, oregano is a wonderful Mediterranean spice that complements a Greek salad.
Ingredients for the low fodmap Greek salad
- Green pepper
- Green onion
Putting this low fodmap salad together takes 5-10 minutes of chopping and preparation time.
The vegetables in this Greek salad are chopped in large chunks, then mixed with crumbled feta cheese and olives, then seasoned with dried oregano. The herb oregano had been tested by the Monash university to be low fodmap and is a great spice for SIBO as it has antimicrobial properties that inhibit the growth of pathogenic or opportunistic bacteria. Getting rid of SIBO for good requires a multiprong approach. Adding low fodmap herbs such as oregano to spice your food is excellent for anyone with SIBO.
I love this greek SIBO salad without a salad dressing as the oregano and feta provide enough flavor. But if you want to make an easy low fodmap Greek salad dressing, mix freshly squeezed lemon juice from 1 lemon with a tbsp of olive oil and drizzle over the salad when serving. Adding some fresh cracked pepper enhances the flavors as well.
You can also add quinoa to this Greek salad to bulk it up and make it a meal. Or serve it as a side salad alongside the main dish you are having.
