I wish you could get a whiff of this glorious Greek Salsa made with chopped cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, EVOO, and fresh oregano.

Oregano//The Spicy RD

Did you know oregano, also known as Origanum vulgare means “mountain joy”? Not only is it delicious, it also acts as an anti-bacterial and is a potent antioxidant too!

Greek Salsa with Tomatos and Fresh Oregano

Cherry Tomatoes//The Spicy RDIn addition to smelling simply divine, this Greek Salsa is the perfect topping for my Easy Vegetable Strata Recipe~this month’s Recipe ReDux contribution to all things “brunch” in honor of all the bridal showers, baby showers, and graduation parties taking place this time of year.

Oh, my goodness…I can’t believe that my sweet “little girl”, Miss SiSi, is graduating from 6th grade this year!  Do you remember your elementary school graduation???

The inspiration for my strata, comes from this yummy recipe at The Urban Baker that I have made for my family several times now.

For my own ReDux version, I’ve swapped out the meat for all veggies, cut back on the cheese a little, and added a delicious twist with my fresh Greek salsa.

Trust me when I tell you that the “strata” and the “salsa” pair fabulously together!

Prep this Spinach, Artichoke, and Feta Strata w/ Greek Salsa ahead of time for a festive and delicious Mother's Day Brunch!

  1. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d
    certainly donate tto this fantastic blog! I suppose foor now i’ll settle for book-marking
    and adding your RSS feed to my Googloe account. I
    look forward to fresh updaates andd will talk about this blog with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!

  2. Thanks everyone for all your lovely comments! I hope you all get a chance to make this, as it is one of my new favorites. I managed to eat it three meals in a row, and plan on making it again soon for SiSi’s 6th grade graduation brunch 🙂

  3. What a terrific idea for a linky party. I’m going to have some fun going through all these recipes. Starting, of course, with yours! I love strata, but always feel like I’m starting the day with something so unhealthy. I’m so glad you tackled this with for a healthy version !!

  4. Not to distract from the strata (distrata?) but graduation- wow. I have a 5th grader so it’ll be next year. At his 5th/6th grade concert the difference in that year is astounding. And I love brunch anything, this sounds great.

  5. My mom is a big fan of stratas. I think they are underutilized in cooking -they are flexible because you can make them in advance. This looks really good and healthy.
    Check: one share to my mom and one to me too 🙂

  6. I can almost smell this! (And I just learned that oregano means mountain joy – love 🙂 I don’t cook with artichokes as much as I like – I think I’ll make this to bring over to my sister who just a baby – she can appreciate a good frittata!

  7. No one over here in the UK makes stratas, but I sometimes do one for New Years Day morning (obviously so all I have to do is shove it in the oven, no matter how rough I feel!).It always reminds me of my childhood as my mother would always make one for NY’sD breakfast. The ultra savoury flavours and herbs of your recipe look so good and really summery. Fabulous, Miss EA. A fantastic ReDux

  8. This recipe sounds fabulous. It’s right up my alley, I love all the Mediterranean flare you’ve added. I have to say, artichokes are another ingredient that I really miss on this low fodmaps diet. I used to eat them straight out of the can!!

  9. I made an artichoke strata last year and it was really good and very light but it was missing something-definitely your Greek salsa! I would eat the whole bowl of that alone …well, maybe with some crusty bread;)
