Xoriátiki Saláta means "Greek Village Salad" and makes a great side salad - or add some crusty bread and make it a light meal all by itself. From Simply Delicious Greek Cooking.
- 1 small head lettuce, torn in pieces (or one bag lettuce)
- 3 tomatoes, cut in wedges
- 1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 4 -6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
- 1⁄2 cup kalamata olive, pitted and halved
- 3⁄4 cup olive oil
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice or 1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon oregano (Greek oregano if available)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Mix tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and lettuce in a salad bowl; top with the olives and Feta cheese.
- Combine the dressing ingredients; pour over salad and toss.
- Add pepper to taste.
And excellent yet filling salad. Only distraction could be that the garlic maybe too strong, which cuts down on the romance. Overall, excellent
Loved this salad and the dressing hit the mark. Made for Tastebud Tickling Travellers for ZWT4.
Delicious and authentic. Just want to point out that's not an 'X' at the beginning of the word for this recipe, but the Greek letter 'hee', which has an 'h' sound. This salad is actually pronounced 'ho-ree-A-tee-kee' (read quickly).
