Greek Salad

Greek Salad

A fresh Greek Salad is found alongside every Greek meal. And it can be a meal in itself with the addition of some gyro meat or grilled chicken. Be sure to add Kalamata olives. I thought I had a jar of olives on board Night Town this evening, but alas… a Greek Salad with no olives. Perilupos. : (

Greek Salad on plate w pastitsio

Whisk ingredients together and drizzle over you salad. Serve along side any great Greek meal. This salad was a nice light compliment to the very filling Pastitsio we had on board this evening. Oompa!
