Greece is a beautiful country and is one of my dream destination. I haven’t really cooked much from this country and when Valli announced Greek Cuisine as theme for BM 76, I decided to pick it.  For Day 1 I made Greek Coffee, which is a big hit in the house. For Day 2 it is a Greek Salad.

Salads are a must in our daily meals , but I avoid heavy dressings .While on my search I found that Greek Cuisine uses lot of olives, feta, peppers. I came across this salad on a vegan site and found it perfect for myself, as it did not have any dairy products. Being off some dairy products is difficult, but I am trying , and hoping I can manage.This Greek Salad which has simple dressing ,is light and pairs well even with our Indian Daal Sabzi . If you wish you could add feta cheese to the salad.  Let’s check out.

  1. It is so tough being vegan when most of our dishes are based on dairy. This salad looks so colourful and must have tasted so yum..

  2. The salad is very colorful and refreshing. Hope one day you get to visit your dream destination.
