Low Carb Simple Greek Salad

Low Carb Simple Greek SaladLow Carb Simple Greek SaladLow Carb Simple Greek Salad. For those of you who might love a Simple Greek Salad this one is as simple and easy as it gets.  The secret:  Shallots instead of purple onions.  It is said that the taste of shallots is a subtle combination of garlic and onion and people ask then why not just combine the two.  My answer is: because the combination of garlic and onion DO NOT taste like a shallot and not by a long shot.  Shallots have their own delicate taste.

I pretty much always have  the ingredients for this salad so for me it’s no sweat.  Notice the HUGE 1 gallon jug of Kalamata olives.  No I don’t go through it in a week or two but I do  probably buy 3-4 of them a year and the Puttanesca Sauce is another great recipe that uses them.  Now if you like a little more complex salad then you might like to try the Greek Salad With A Creamy Feta Dressing.  My personal preference is pretty much a peeled & seeded cucumber and this is up to you.  It has to do with the toughness of the skin which can some times accompany them and…I just don’t like it.
