This is a REFRESHING, tangy Salad--low in fat. If you want it creamy and not so low in fat, just add 2 tablespoons mayonnaise.
Be sure to slice the cucumbers and onions very very thin!
Serve as salad or top open faced sandwiches with it!
This recipe only take a couple of minutes to cook - You just want to wilt the spinach - the cinnamon orange gives a nice flavor to the spinach. You do not need a dressing - serve this as a side dish or a salad
Be prepared for the best Greek salad on the planet! --- plan ahead the dressing needs at least 2 or more hours to blend the flavors, I sometimes add in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese to the dressing for a more cheesy dressing, all amounts may be adjusted to taste ---- to marinade the salad allow to sit at room temperature before serving, see bottom of instructions --- you will find this and many more of my recipes posted here http://kittencalskitchen.com/2009/04/13/kittens-famous-greek-salad/ ---also see my recipe #359292
Another recipe which I found in Greek chef and restaurateur Theodore Kyriakou’s ‘real greek food', which he co-authored with food writer Charles Campion. So simple, so delicious and so quintessentially Greek! A really quick to make, fabulous side dish to serve with grilled meat and fish dishes, or with pasta and rice dishes. This recipe - for a classic lettuce salad - is from the island of Cos and, apparently, "from everywhere else in Greece"! When you come across a recipe like this one, you cannot be in the least surprised that Kyriakou maintains that “the term “Greek Salad” is one of the most abused in the world”.
