Greek Salad “Horiatiki”

by Mary Papoulias-Platis

We have been selling Greek salad for over 30 years with our catering company. On our trip to Greece in October, I ate their delicious salads everywhere I traveled- city to city. This year we decided to take out the lettuce and re-place it  with the authentic salad of Greece. Fresh tomatoes, salty olives, crispy cold cucumber slices, and a big slab of feta cheese on top. Add a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and your set. You cannot ask for more than that!

The perfect additional to any Greek meal is this traditional Greek salad served with a "hunk" of feta cheese.
