Maroulosalata (Greek Romaine Salad)


In Greece, maroulosalata is one of the most common salads. The simple ingredient list shouldn't fool you--it's such a light, crunchy, refreshing salad that is full of flavor. I particularly love it alongside roast or grilled meats. The key to authenticity is to almost shred the romaine lettuce (marouli), rather than tear it into large pieces as we normally do in the States.

Prep Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
15 mins


  • 1 head romaine lettuce

  • 6 scallions, finely sliced

  • ½ cup chopped fresh dill

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Wash and dry romaine lettuce. Lay leaves on a cutting board and slice lengthwise across the leaves, shredding them into 1/4-inch strips.

  2. Transfer lettuce to a large bowl. Add scallions, dill, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper; toss until well combined. Adjust oil, vinegar, and seasoning to taste.


If you want, chill the salad in the refrigerator for up to 2 to 3 hours before serving, but leave the oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper out until just before serving.
