Greek Salad

Greek Salad is a summer salad of the (obviously) Greek cuisine. For people who are wondering why I've been posting chocolates and cakes since I talked about adopting a healthy lifestyle, here's a post to put an end to that "WHY"! :) (and it was my birthday! I couldn't have substituted a salad for the delicious cake!)

I did not try this recipe. My friend Manali Shah of Nothing Intellectual did. You can check out her post HERE. Or, for the benefit of the lazy (oops! sorry! please do come back to my blog!) I'm re-posting it here (with her permission of course!) But I have tasted greek salad once. Its light, healthy and tasty!! But honestly, not something I would have everyday! I like my food cooked. I'm not a big fan of salads. But when garnished with delicious toppings, who am I to say no?:)

In Manali Shah's words....

"Endive lettuce, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, kiwi, black olives and tomatoes – sprinkled generously with Olive oil. My Greek salad was colourful and delectable! And the whole thing took hardly a few minutes to make!
I had never tasted feta cheese before and trust me, it is heavenly. It’s undoubtedly the best cheese I’ve ever had. If you’re in Mumbai, you can buy it from Foodhall at Palladium, Phoenix Mills and at Godrej’s Nature’s Basket outlets."

So, there you go - a healthy recipe! Don't eat it for breakfast, lunch AND dinner! If you really love it, have once in a day! Who know, eating too much of raw veggies may turn you into a cow! heheh.. kidding! Anyhoo, here's a recipe I found on Tarla Dalal's site. If & when I make it, I'll post pictures.

1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours to blend flavors. 
2. And does taste yummmm!!!!!
Happy Eating!!! :P
