Costco Kirkland Signature Greek Salad Review

I love Greek salad. Even though it’s not very hard to make, it does take some time to chop up all of the vegetables, so a pre-made version like this Kirkland Signature Greek Salad is certainly appealing. Does it taste as good as fresh homemade Greek salad? Is it worth the relatively high price? How long does it stay fresh tasting? Read on for all of the answers!

If Greek salad isn’t your thing, some other salads from Costco are the Taylor Farms Dill Pickle Salad, Stonemill Kitchens Homestyle Red Potato Salad, Paisley Farm Four Bean Salad, Kirkland Signature Quinoa Salad, Kirkland Signature Goat Cheese, Pecan and Mixed Greens Salad, Eat Smart Sweet Kale Salad Kit, Kirkland Signature Kale & Ancient Grains Salad and the Taylor Farms Asian Cashew Chopped Salad.

The Greek salad is in Costco’s pre-made meal and deli section. The item number is 29079.

There’s more than enough feta in the salad!


There’s a lot of feta cheese and dressing in the package. For my family, probably too much. It’s annoying that the feta isn’t crumbled; it adds a somewhat time-consuming step to serving the salad.

I noticed that there weren’t many yellow and orange peppers in my package. I wonder if this was just by chance or if they’re more expensive.

Even though we ate the salad the day after it was packaged and two days before the best-before date, the vegetables looked a little soft/soggy. Taste and texture-wise they were fine though.

The salad is really tasty! I enjoy Greek salad and this is a pretty good one. The dressing is a standard vinaigrette, but the herbs and spices add a nice flavor. I don’t know how traditional it is, but it’s enjoyable. The feta is relatively mild but has a nice tanginess to it.

Overall this salad was quite enjoyable for one that was packed the day before. I don’t think you’d want to let it sit in your fridge much longer than that, but it was still nice and crunchy. The classic Greek salad flavors are well executed. I’d definitely buy it again if I needed an easy salad for a group of four to six.


The tray of Greek salad costs $19.70 Canadian and the cost is dependent on the weight of the tray. This isn’t a cheap salad but the ingredients cost more than other salads. It also has three very large blocks of feta.

It would probably cost a person more to buy all of these ingredients separately and make it than buy it from Costco.

I recommend eating the salad the day it’s packaged.


The salad needs to be kept refrigerated and has a best-before date that’s three days from when it’s packed on. I can’t see it being good for much longer than three days and I would try to purchase one that’s been packed on the day you’re buying it.

Ready to serve!

This works well as a side salad with fish like salmon, chicken, steak, pork or even lamb. You could also use it as a main entree and just add some grilled chicken or other protein of choice to it and serve it with some pita bread!



1/13th of the tray with dressing contains 120 calories, 10 grams of fat, five grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fiber, two grams of sugar, three grams of protein and 380 milligrams of sodium.

It’s really hard to gauge how much you’re really eating and I bet most people will eat more than 1/13th of the tray. The fat content is coming from the feta and oil in the dressing.


The ingredients list is really straightforward with ingredients you’d expect to see in a Greek salad. I wish that instead of vegetable oil in the dressing they used olive oil. At home I’d make a Greek vinaigrette using olive oil but this isn’t a homemade salad!

The Greek salad from Costco contains milk and soy and may contain wheat, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, molluscs, crustaceans, sesame and mustard. This is likely due to other meals being produced in the same area containing these ingredients.

Give it a try!

This is a solid Greek salad! Costco doesn’t skimp on the feta or dressing and it’s very convenient.

  1. Personally I prefer the feta in blocks. The old version had the feta already cut, but it became soggy from the dressing which was pre-mixed. The whole thing became a liquid mess and I had to sift the salad from the mix of water and dressing that pooled at the bottom of the package. Now with the dressing and cheese separate, the salad stays fresher, longer. You can keep the dressing in a small mason jar and add it to your bowl every time you serve a portion.

  2. I used to buy and love the Costco Greek salad, as a matter of fact it was my favorite Greek salad. I don’t know when Costco started using goat feta, which I cannot eat, for many reasons, now I stear clear of it. Will Costco bring back the cow feta cheese as it’s much more palatable and not overwhelming in an unpleasant flavor.


    P.S. I used to buy the Greek salad every other week until the pungent taste of goat feta was used as one of the main ingredients. Even if Costco could give the option of choosing cow versus goat feta.

  3. Re: your comment that the feta isn’t crumbled, which was annoying to you, in Greece a Greek salad is served with each individual portion having a block of feta, the way the Costco Greek salad is packaged. I got used to it served this way while traveling in Greece and now much prefer to make my Greek salads with a block of feta with olive oil drizzled on it. Try it with an open mind, you might like it.

  4. This latest version of Costco’s Greek Salad is better than the previous one. Yes, it’s more expensive but you get what you pay for. I don’t have to add any more vegetables or feta cheese to it unlike their previous version in which I had to add more cucumbers, little tomatoes and feta cheese. Easy enough to cut up the feta into small cubes or crumble it. My family really likes it and welcomed it after it had been unavailable for so long. I pick up a rotisserie chicken and Greek salad for supper on my Costco shopping days; convenient and tasty!

    • Update: we don’t like the change lately in the feta cheese; too “goaty” tasting. I think they switched to the Kirkland brand from the Apetina brand.
