This Greek salad has sliced red peppers and a bed of slivered lettuce. Eaten at Melina's Café in Athens. The café is named for Melina Mercouri, a Greek actress, activist and politician, so beloved that museums are free on March 6, the day of her death in 1994.
Greek salad in a bun -- topped with capers. This was lunch in Elefsina (near Athens) after visiting the ruins of the temple of Demeter/Ceres, Greek goddess of agriculture and everlasting life.
This one has an unusual variation - finely chopped nuts. Next to a plate of grilled fish at a blue-checkered-tablecloth (seafood) restaurant in Tirnavos, a farming town north of Athens.
OK, this is not a traditional Greek salad - it's the winter wheat salad at the Acropolis Museum restaurant. It was delicious with slice of cheese pie. I asked for the recipe but they wouldn't share. :(
