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.

Cook's Note:

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.

2.16.21 Thoroughly enjoyed this simple salad. It has few ingredients but is packed with delicate flavor, and is nutritionally-friendly. I always have romaine in the house, and frequently have fresh dill, so I can see this being made often. Read More
