Greek Salad doesn't have lettuce.

So im still stuck in my cobb salad, greek food phase from my visit with my sis in NYC. From the delicious feta cheese that made me itchy, to the to-die-for cobb salad with bacon, avocado, tomatoes, mozzarella, baby corns, onions, olives and the wonderful fresh hot pitabread. (yum! my mouth is watering)...but basically, im stuck in a salad rut & I can't get out... (but i don't really want to either)


So, Apparently in Greece, their salads don't contain lettuce. But hey, who needs lettuce when it tastes soo good! I love salads, especially when it has lots of accessories... thats what i call all the croutons, cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers and other toppings...

Either way... greek salad is all accessories... and its mighty fine with me. So i decided to make my version of the all-accessory greek salad with black olives, capers, cilantro, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, lemon juice and salt... it.is. divine. ((oh && you can add plenty of feta if you so desire!))

SO here it is!

In Greece, we don't use capers or cilantro either. There's usually a smattering of green pepper, with olive oil, vinegar and a bit of oregano for dressing. It's simple.

i love it when there's just a giant slab of feta cheese, too

no lettuce necessary--this looks great. i love that you threw in some cilantro, even if it apparently isn't a usual component. yum. :)

No lettuce. It does look good, even though it's not "traditional."
