Feta cheese isn't a must in Greek salad, it's an extra. Feta - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you do want to add some kind of cheese, though, I would add kefalotyri or kefalograviera, see links: Kefalotyri cheese - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kefalograviera - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kefalograviera - Greek Cheeses - Buying and Cooking Guide

the last link tells you which cheeses you can substitute for kefalograviera. Both cheeses are similar in taste and texture. Kefalotyri is mostly used on spaghetti.

You could also try anthotyro which is similar to feta but doesn't have any salt. It's texture is a bit different too. See below link: Anthotyros cheese - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
