This Greek salad feta board is inspired by both my childhood in Greece and Bulgaria and the trending viral butter board. This recipe is the ultimate showstopper: it’s stunning with an array of brightly colored produce, delicious and fun to eat, and so unique.
Why You’ll Love Greek Salad Feta Board
If you haven’t heard of my butter boards or goat cheese boards, you’re missing out: this is one of the most clever food trends to go viral on Instagram and TikTok. I originally came across the butter board on TikTok shared by Justine Snacks and thought it was brilliant. The original concept is by Josh McFadden so please check their pages out as well.
This is my take on the viral trend: whipped feta dolloped on your favorite serving board, topped with chunky Greek salad ingredients, and seasoned simply with salt, olive oil, and oregano. Easy, healthy, and so appealing.
If you have ever had a Greek Horiatiki salata or even a Bulgarian Shopska salata (which is practically the same thing), you will fall in love with this sharable board version I came up with.
How to Serve Greek Salad Board
I served my board with a loaf of fresh bread, warmed in the oven, and sliced. The bread slices make for the perfect “utensil” to mop up all the goodness of this dish.
A few presentation and serving tricks: serve the board with individual butter knives for each of your guests.
Cut the different vegetables in unique shapes for visual appeal: halved tomato ovals, geometric chunks of cucumber, half-moon slices of onion, and thin rounds of peppers.
Variations and Substitutions
There are so many ways to personalize a Greek Salad Board, including:
- Feel free to use any creamy cheese, like Boursin.
- You can also make this board totally vegan by using a plant-based spreadable cheese.
- Feel free to use any veggies or herbs of choice. Balsamic glaze on top would be lovely as well.
Best Served With
- Warm, sliced crusty bread is a must alongside a butter board. A fresh baguette is the perfect choice.
- You could also serve this with pita bread cut into triangles and warmed for a few minutes in the oven.
- For easy entertaining, serve this board as a starter, followed by a light and refreshing meal, such as my Greek Souvlaki Skewers or Baked Parmesan Chicken.

A board like this is perfect for hosting or making any of my charcuterie or butter board recipes!
Yes you can definitely line your board in parchment and spread the softened feta across the parchment the night before serving. Store in the refrigerator, and then add the toppings at the last minute, before serving.
Cutting boards, especially wood ones, can hold onto contaminants and germs, even after being well washed. To ensure no cross-contamination with whatever was previously prepared on the board, line the board in parchment paper.
Absolutely! You can certainly use vegan butter or a vegan, spreadable cheese.
Greek Salad Feta Board
- 250 grams feta cheese , or any creamy cheese you enjoy
- 2 tablespoons yogurt, plain
- 2 cucumbers, I used mini and chopped them
- 10 tomatoes , cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- ½ green pepper , (I used a sweet cubanelle pepper)
- red onion, a few thin slices
- olives, small handful
- pinch of salt, to taste
- olive oil, drizzle
- oregano, fresh for presentation
- 1 baguette, for serving
- Add the feta cheese and yogurt to a food processor and process until smooth. If you prefer the cheese spread creamier, add a bit more yogurt, 1 tablespoon at a time. The whipped cheese should be so soft that it's easy to spread. Using a spoon, spread the cheese mixture on a clean plate or serving board.
- Add the cucumbers, tomatoes, green pepper, onions, and olives on top of the cheese. Sprinkle with salt, drizzle with olive oil, and garnish with oregano. Serve with baguette slices.
