Greek Salad With Lettuce Recipe

GREEK SALAD WITH LETTUCE RECIPE

The Greek cuisine has numerous salad recipes,  easy to prepare, with authentic  Mediterranean flavors.  It’s not difficult to find an awesome  Greek salad with lettuce recipe.

One of my favorite salad recipes is a popular Greek recipe called “Salata tou agrou”. The name of this colorful salad means salad from the field/ from a grassy area  (agros = grassy area, field). The best period to prepare this salad is in May, due to the availability of fresh ingredients. Luckily, with few changes in the ingredients, you can enjoy this fantastic salad whole year around. It can be perfectly combined with anything baked.
