Panzanella salad from Greece | Quick Warm Salads

Ulysses, Troy, Pygmalion, Greek Ancient History, Parthenon, GB
Shaw…. the list is endless when one refers to Greece. The cuisine too, with
heavy influence from Mediterrranean cuisine, is fresh, warm and inviting.
Moussaka, Greek Salads, Spanakopita, Baklava, Loukomades,Bourou-bourou ,Macedonia salad .. the entire world’s
best and freshest cuisine seems to stem from Greece. 

I have a cousin who is
currently honeymooning in Greece, and she seems to be enjoying the local veggie
cuisine to the hilt. Unlike other Europenan / Mediterranean countries, veggies
and olive oil are favourite ingredients with both tourists and local alike..
