I call this the Greek Salad USA because this recipe is inspired by the Greek salads that you typically find in Greek restaurants in America. I wish I knew which Greek diner or Greek restaurant in the states started this trend. However, it caught on and most Americans think this is a Greek salad. Then, surprise… they arrive in Greece and this salad does not exist.
I added Avocado to this salad, just because it does well with our keto macros since it has good fats. I have also seen sliced beets on this salad, however, you can’t have beets on Keto, so I omitted the beets.
This salad uses my Simple Greek Vinaigrette dressing found under Sauces and Dressings. The other interesting part of this salad is the surprise potato salad found at the bottom. Of course on Keto, you can’t have potato salad, so instead, I’m using my Hearts of Palm Salad, which does a good job of mimicking the real potato salad.
When you are ready to serve this salad, start by placing about 1/2 cup of my Hearts of Palm salad on the bottom of the plate.
Then, add your lettuce and chopped green onion on top of the Hearts of Palm (Faux Potato) Salad.
After, begin assembling your salad by adding the reaming ingredients, oregano, and my Simple Greek Vinaigrette salad dressing.
