A True Greek Peasant Salad


Garden Fresh

I'm sure many of you have seen, or even ordered a Greek Salad. But, did you know, in Greece, the Peasant Salad, what many consider the True Greek Salad, has no lettuce? Sure, some times a salad in Greece comes with greens, but, more often that is because the owner is serving tourists.

A Greek Salad in the Taverna's and tables of the countryside, are large, fresh chunks of today's vegetables, in the bowl, with a bright, fresh dressing of Olive Oil, Lemon, and Red Wine Vinegar, seasoned with some dried Oregano, Sea Salt and Ground Fresh Pepper.

Fresh From the Garden, Cucumbers!


I diced up two kinds of Cucumber: Straight 8 and Spacemaster 80.


Cleaned and cut up some Orange Straight Carrot, some yellow carrot, and some Sweet Small Carrot. I rough cut, some purple pepper, some yellow Sunshine Pepper and Green Pepper, as well as a Banana Pepper. Finely chopped some Red Bunching Onion, Some Red Spanish Onion and diced some Oregano and Basil, too. (I added the Rosemary (pictured above, to the chicken for dinner.)

Tomatos added too!


5 kinds of tomato went into the Peasant Salad: Sweetie 100 Cherry, White Cherry, Cherokee Purple, Beefsteak, and San Marzano Tomato.

Today's Harvest

It's almost sad, lately, as I can see, smaller and smaller harvests. These daily treats of fresh picked food will be diminishing, too. Oh, sure, I canned some tomato, and dried some, too. I made sauces, and salsas, and some other treats... but there's nothing like fresh picked vegetables, for my family and friends.

I truly love the happiness I see on the faces of my family
when I am feeding them fresh home grown food!
