Greek Cultural Salad



A Greek salad is without lettuce but that is not the only thing that distinguishes it above all the rest. The distinguishing ingredients are always tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and topped with Feta cheese and a simple olive oil dressing.

This simple dressing is very versatile, so double the recipe and keep refrigerated for a meat marinade, to drizzle on vegetables or with those salads with lettuce. Because it has olive oil, bring back to room temperature as the oil may solidified in the chill.

Note from Tassos: Authentic Feta cheese, Kalamata Olives and our Extra Virgin Olive Oil come only from Greece. If it is not from Greece, it must identify as a Feta or Kalamata 'type' or 'like'. These products are part of the Greek culture and heritage and are Protected Designation of Origin foods. If you like to know where your food comes from and appreciate the difference in superior quality without a big price tag, make sure these items are of Greek origin.
