Traditional Greek Salad's do not use lettuce.
As someone who married into this Greek tradition, I found a new "favorite" salad.
Cucumbers, sliced or chopped
Red onion, chopped
Bell pepper, chopped (optional)
Oil & vinegar Mix together, ENJOY!
by John Kohler
Use organic ingredients when ever possible.
1 bunch of cilantro
1 small yellow or red onion
1 small chili pepper
2 ripe avocados.
handful of whole dulse leaf
Chop cilantro, dice tomatoes, dice onion, finely dice chili pepper, dice avocado. After dicing each ingredient add to large bowl. Tear whole dulse leaf into bite size pieces, add to bowl.
1 1/2 cups Cauliflower Florets (no stems!)
1/4 cup Olive Oil1 Tablespoon dried Dill Weed
1 Tablespoon Nama Shoyu
1/2 small Lemon, juiced
1/2 large Orange, juiced
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
3 dashes of Cayenne Pepper
1 head of Green Leaf Lettuce
Dice tomatoes and crumble cauliflower to the same size. Mix together with olive oil to coat. Add dill weed, mix well. Add nama shoyu, mix well. Add lemon juice, mix well. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Set aside.
Stack lettuce leaves and roll the long way. Next, cut the leaves creating long thin strands of lettuce. SEPERATE. Place in a shallow plate and spoon mixture into the center. The excess liquid will cover the bottom of the plate and flavor the rest of the lettuce. Serves 1-2.
TIP: Use homemade garlic powder by drying fresh minced garlic at room temp. for a week and then powder it in a mortar.
