Greek Salad – a Fun Twist
So we all agree, a green salad should have lettuce, right? Instead of the lettuce being chopped and combined with this salad, the romaine spears serve as the dish. A shout out to Sue & Gary for their great choice on this course! Nice and light and fun to eat. Basically like a lettuce wrap, but using chopped vegetables, olives, feta and an oregano red wine vinaigrette.
Reformatting food is a great way to take recipes you know and love and give them new life. Remember the deconstructed food phase? Where every hip chef and cooking magazine was taking recipes and breaking them down into separate elements on a plate? Whether or not you remember this recent food fad, reformatting food is a fun way to get creative.
This salad would also be a nice addition to an array of appetizers. You could fill them in advance, or serve the chopped salad in a pretty bowl with romaine leaves, and let guests fill their own. Face it, there aren’t a ton of healthy veggie appetizers beyond veggies and dip. This option would fit that bill very nicely and is so much more chic!
