Light and Refreshing
Greek Lettuce Salad Recipe

This Greek Lettuce Salad Recipe – Maroulo Salata is just what it says – mainly just lettuce with a simple vinaigrette dressing. The Greek people are not known for eating a lot of lettuce even though they eat a lot of salads.

Their salad recipes are mostly composed of fresh vegetables combined with cheese and olives. More along the lines of the famous Greek Salad.

It was the Romans who first ate lettuce with just chopped onions and a dressing of oil and vinegar. This passed on to the neighbouring countries.

Now - whenever the Greeks want something really light and refreshing – then they will turn to this simple Greek salad recipe.
