Lettuce is about the last ingredient a real Greek salad is comprised of.
Did you know this?
If you didn’t know this, you know this now.
A traditional Greek salad consists of sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, green bell pepper, red onion, olives and Feta cheese.
This classic combination is delicious.
Why is it Greek salad always tastes so much better at a Greek restaurant than it does in our homes?
Well, there’s no need to worry about that ever again if you follow my directions.
Here’s what I do.
I set aside a cucumber, tomato, green bell pepper, red onion and Greek olives – a combination of them.
I do not use Feta cheese because I am allergic to cheese.
But in trying to figure out how to make my Greek salad I took a try with Greek Oil – olive dill, lemon peel Greek oil.
That made the entire difference.
It is so basic and so easy and to chop up all the veggies and to mix them all together with Greek olives.
Then a dousing of Greek oil and voila!
You have a dish as good as any Greek restaurant anywhere.
It is cheap. It is easy. It is fresh. It is bursting with taste and different textures.
Some bread cut on the side, preferably French bread of a baguette type.
Are Greek salads healthy?
Greek salad is low-calorie and nutrient dense, also providing you with vitamins A and C as well as potassium and iron.
This type of salad reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer. Mainly, it tastes brilliant – and I mean brilliant.
Bring it on.
