As I think I’ve mentioned before, my family likes Greek food a lot. Mr. MarthaAndMe’s ethnic heritage is a bit unclear so we always joke he actually is Greek. Ana at Sweet Almond Tree chose this Greek Salad for today. I remember the episode when Michael Psilakis appeared on the show. I even got his cookbook from the library at one point.
Now I must admit I cheated a bit with this salad. I don’t care for iceberg lettuce, so I used Boston. I don’t like onions in my salad so I left those out. And I do not care for fennel at all, so that was out too. Oh, I skipped the olives as well since I’m not a fan of those either. All right, so maybe I changed it a lot! It was still good though. What I loved about this salad were the fresh herbs that were mixed into the salad. I never think to do that, and always add herbs to my dressings, but having the fresh parsley, dill, and oregano (and it was fresh – from pots on my deck!) added so much flavor to this. It was just fantastic. I also really like the scallions in the salad. This was a delicious salad!
