Traditional Greek salad (I’m talkin Horiatiki here) gets all the fun and attention, but let me tell you that maroulosalata is really where it’s at. We love a Greek salad because of two things: the crunch and the feta. If you’re like me, you put up with things like raw red onion and tomatoes for that feta crunch combo. Well, if you make this lesser known Greek salad, you get all that goodness, but with a less bitter onion and a better herb. Allow me to introduce you to the maroulosalata.
I followed this recipe and it comes together in just a few quick minutes. Start by thinly slicing two hearts of romaine into ribbons and make sure it’s dry. In your serving bowl, whisk together 1/2 c. olive oil, the juice of one lemon, and 1/4 tsp salt. To the serving bowl, add the lettuce, 4-5 chopped scallions, 1/2 block of [good] feta (crumbled), and 1 bunch of fresh dill (chopped). Toss to coat with the dressing and enjoy.
