Greek Salad Spaghetti Squash Bowls
The idea popped into my head to combine Greek Salad and Spaghetti Squash, and these Greek Salad Spaghetti Squash Bowls were a winner for a low-carb meal. Spaghetti squash and tomatoes do have some carbs, but this is low in net carbs; enjoy!
Sometimes a recipe idea just pops into my head and I have no idea where it came from. That’s what happened with these Greek Salad Spaghetti Squash Bowls, but the recipe turned out to be a keeper that I’ve made many times. I tried this out on my nephew Jake (who is NOT a fan of spaghetti squash) and he gobbled it up, so I think it’s fair to say that this recipe is a winner!
And this can certainly be a quick make-after-work dinner. You can prep all the Greek salad ingredients while the squash cooks in the oven (or toaster oven), and you’ll probably have time to watch the news before you need to mix the salad ingredients together and spoon it over the cooked squash. And if you’ve never been able to warm up to the idea of spaghetti squash as a substitute for pasta, you just might like it this way. For the spaghetti squash fans, there’s a new category for spaghetti squash recipes on the blog, check it out!

How to Make Greek Salad Spaghetti Squash Bowls:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe including nutritional information.)
- Cut the spaghetti squash into quarters lengthwise, scrape out seeds, drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle with Greek Seasoning (affiliate link), and roast about 50 minutes at 400F/200C. (You can cook the spaghetti squash in the Instant Pot or in a slow cooker if you prefer!)
- While the squash cooks, cut up cucumber, chop up some green pepper and red onion, and cut some Kalamata olives and cherry tomatoes in half.
- Crumble up about 1/3 cup Feta cheese, or a little more if you’re in a Feta cheese kind of mood.
- Whisk together lemon juice, red wine vinegar, olive oil, oregano, and black pepper to make the lemon vinaigrette.
- When the spaghetti squash is done, use a fork to scrape the strands of squash away from the skin.
- Discard the skin, and divide the squash into bowls.
- Combine the salad ingredients in a bowl and then add the dressing and stir to combine. (Use all the dressing so there’s plenty to soak down on the squash.)
- Then spoon a generous amount of the Greek Salad mixture (including some dressing) over the squash and devour!
