Martha Stewart Living New Greek Salad


In the last year I have been making a concerted effort to make at least one vegetarian meal a week. I have found a number of delicious curries and pasta dishes, but I haven't really tried any salad recipes. Both of my sons love salad and will often only eat the side salad on their plate and not the main dish. I was interested when a recent issue of Martha Stewart Living had a recipe for new Greek salad.

The ingredients in this salad are simple and were all easily found at my local grocery store. There was only one type of olive bread to chose from, so that is the one I purchased, I don't think a different or better variety would have made a difference in the recipe. I was pleasantly surprised that my local grocery store now carries a variety of fresh and jarred kalamata olives, including a generic brand. This recipe is almost all prep work. The only cooking involved is for the croutons and olives, and only take about 5 minutes. I was able to put together this entire salad in less than the suggested 15 minutes while my hungry husband paced around the kitchen.

Everyone in my family thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. Even my picky sons ate everything on their plates. My husband was a particular fan of the fried olive bread and olives, he even looked for leftovers after dinner. I have never made a Greek salad at home; I always ordered it at restaurants. After making this simple and delicious recipe, I will be making more salads at home.

For the recipe go to New Greek Salad.
