Green Salad | Hortosalata

Green Salad | Hortosalata

Another simple style Greek salad is boiled greens or otherwise in the Greek language ‘hortosalata’. This salad’s season is spring as these types of greens grow during the spring season. The ‘hortosalata’ can contain several types of greens that thrive in the Mediterranean region and in Greece in particular. The greens are cleaned and washed thoroughly with water and then boiled for a few minutes in hot water or steamed to retain their nutrients. The ‘hortosalata’ is very good for the digestive system. It is served as a typical Greek dish with virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice and a garnish of few olives. If you like vegetarian dishes you will surely like this salad. If they serve it to you with relatively big chunks of greens, just cut them into smaller pieces and mix them well inside the olive oil and lemon juice that your dish will have. This will help the nice taste to expand and satisfy your senses.
