The Ultimate Greek Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by evelyn/athens

This is the most delicious salad - fresh and wonderful-tasting. FYI, lettuce can very much be a part of any greek salad - if you want it to. We like lettuce in my family and I often add it. It would not be 'authentic' in a Horiatiki (village) salad, but who cares?

The name of this recipe says it all as this is The Ultimate Greek Salad! This makes a nice large family salad that was enjoyed by all. I made one small change in that I cut the olive oil in half as my lettuce was still fairly moist from washing, other than that made as written. We thought the garlic and oregano were the perfectly proportion to the other ingredients and DH who quite often does not like the stronger flavored onions thought the soaking did a nice job taking the edge off. Thanks for the post.
