A little while ago, I did a post about the perfect (most authentic) Greek salad. During my recent sojourn in Greece, I took photos of all the Greek salads I had, so that I could show you the real thing. Keep in mind that these aren't homemade salads, but they're what you'll be served at a taverna or restaurant.
Salad served at a (non-touristy) restaurant - look how it's swimming in olive oil:
Tourist-trap salad - we know this because the cucumber isn't peeled:
Salad served at a neighbourhood taverna:
Salad served at a fancy taverna - notice the funky salad bowl, plus use of capers:
Salad at a traditional fish taverna - this is the one that looks the most like a homemade one, although they've skimped on the olive oil and herbs:
Finally, here's a variation: it's what I call a party salad, because you only get the feta cubed like that when the salad is served as part of a buffet. This one was served at a Greek restaurant in London - hence the cucumber isn't peeled and there's chopped parsley all over.
Next time I hope to show you some homemade varieties.
