\Greek Salad is probably the best option if you are looking for a dish that is very delicious and equally healthy at the same time. One of the most exotic dishes in the world, Greek Salad, has grown in popularity in the recent past as the people have started to realize the importance of healthy foodstuffs.
This exotic dish originated in the Greek countryside a couple of centuries ago. The Americans have come up with their version of Greek Salad, and so have many other European countries. The name became so popular that people started calling other similar salads with the same name. However, I have always loved the original version with olive oil and vinegar in it. The original version also has other fresh and tasty veggies in it like lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, red onions, green bell peppers, and oregano in it. I can feel all those salad loving people salivating out there.
Anyways, I won’t keep you people waiting any longer. I have mentioned the recipe and the list of essential ingredients to make this dish below.
