Greek Salads - Diverse and Delicious

Greek salads are as diverse and delicious as Greek wines. Salads are often eaten alongside the main dishes and rarely contain lettuce - instead, Greek salads are garnishes with beans, olives, dressings and fresh vegetables. So eat like a Greek native and enjoy some of these hearty Mediterranean salads.

Chopped Greek Salad with Chicken Some delicious chicken accented with fresh broccoli and tomatoes, chopped into small pieces, makes for a hearty Greek salad. Enjoy this dish with pita bread and hummus.

Smokey Eggplant Grilled Salad - Have you ever tasted grilled eggplant? It’s delicious! The mellow taste of eggplant is balanced by smokey paprika, vinegar and a light dressing.

Chickpea Salad - Add to the Mediterranean flavor of a Greek salad by adding chickpeas and ranch to a lettuce-less salad. If ranch isn’t your choice, this salad is just as tasty with a tangy vinaigrette.

Other great treats to try alongside Greek salads are baked parmesan tomato slices.

Feel free to step outside your comfort zone when experimenting with Mediterranean salads and open your tastebuds to the delicious salads made without lettuce. Stop by and give our Greek salads a taste for a truly authentic taste of Greece cuisine.
