11 Must-Try Mediterranean Salad Recipes. Easy salad recipes that are nutritious and packed with flavor. Perfect to complete your meal, or as the main dish!
People often think of salad as the back-up singer to the main event. But in Mediterranean cooking, the lines are easily blurred. Sure, we love our baked fish, grilled souvlaki, and beef kabobs, but the party is not complete without some stand-out salads.
Particularly on warm days, when I'd rather be basking in the sun than slaving in the kitchen, it's salad for dinner...and no one really cares, y'all!
We're not talking your average salad fluffed up with wilted lettuce. Nope. Think mouthwatering, loaded salads. Chickpea salad with a side of eggplant; or a platter of tuna salad with all sorts of crunchy veggies, tossed in a zesty Dijon vinaigrette and accompanied by warm pita pockets (now that's my kinda of lazy-night dinner!)
Without further chatter, here is my current list of favorite Mediterranean salad recipes (click on linked salad name in red to see the full recipe).
