Greek Salad Without Lettuce Recipe
No Lettuce No Problem
Do you ever get sick of eating lettuce? I do as practically every night we have a salad with dinner. Even when I make a pasta or potato salad or coleslaw my husband still wants a lettuce salad. Finally I found a salad to make that does not contain lettuce and it actually satisfied him.
This is basically a Greek Salad but the dressing is not authentic. I used sweet white onions rather than the red onions. I made this salad for dinner the other night to go with a pork recipe that I found here on HubPages along with brown rice and Mediterranean vegetables.
You will find the link for the pork recipe at the bottom of the page.
- 1 Field cucumber peeled and sliced
- 2 Large tomatoes chopped
- 1 White sweet onion
- ¼ cup of sliced black olives
