Dinner Tonight: Shredded Romaine Salad
Making a great salad has never really been a question of time. Most can be mixed together in a matter of minutes, and this one is no different. What is different about this little beast, beyond the cute presentation, is how it turns the normal Greek salad on its head by removing ingredients instead adding them. It's simply romaine, green onions, dill, lemon, oil, and salt. I added a little feta just to be horribly difficult, but that's really all you need.
I found this recipe in Jim Botsacos's The New Greek Cuisine, a book I wish I had the courage to tackle more often. (Most of his recipes look fantastic, if a tad complex). It's only natural that I'd drift to the one that can be whipped up in less than five minutes.
