Your Traditional Greek Salad is ready to serve!


Today, I have got a bit of something traditional for you to show you! It is a salad! Again! But not just any salad! It is the Traditional Greek Salad! One that you have to taste if you are planning to visit Greece in the future, or one that you must have tasted in case you have already visited the country of my origins.

It is one of the most classic dishes that you will find almost everywhere in Greece, although I have to admit it is not always that great, depending on where you choose to have it!

What makes it so wonderful is the fact that all of the ingredients are usually regional, especially if you get to have that salad in a Greek island, and what’s greater than tasting tomatoes and cucumbers coming directly from a local garden?? And what a great combination they make along with feta cheese! (I can honestly have feta in olive oil just for dinner!!)

Anyway, I could not think of greater match of wine than the Greek Assyrtiko! You are tasting a Traditional Greek Salad after all, so why not go for a Greek wine as well??

So, how about you give it a try and let me know? A great plus? You can only make it within 15 minutes! Check for yourselves! 😉
