GREEK SALAD WITH AVOCADO

I was recently on a table with journalists and they asked me what my favorite salad is. Many recipes I thought, but ultimately or traditional, classic Greek salad was the answer.

I told them of course that the greek salad – in all its variants – is my beloved, especially the greek salad with avocado.

To my surprise, they had not heard it before. They were in great surprise that such a “new” product of the market could be married with such a traditional recipe.That’s why I decided to share this recipe here.

Because that in my palate is something ordinary, but for many (new and old) friends it is something original and unprecedented.
