My little salad

Here is the little salad that I made with the lettuce I grew (found) in the back garden!

It was especially tender so I just gently tore it, added a small sliced cucumber, a few small cubes of feta and a sprinkling of salt.

For oil, I added some absolutely amazing Olive oil that some friends gave me from their trees in Lygourio (Λυγουριό). It tastes outstanding. It has an almost creamy taste.

I'm told that Lygourio is one of a few places with special registration for their oil. I'll have to investigate this matter further but maybe some of you readers can shed some more light on it?

Anyway my verdict of the whole salad was phenomenal. Even though my little lettuce was so small that there was only a few small forks full for each of us.


  1. How sweetly satisfying :)

    I don't know about the oil in your area but I prefer my own! LOL...haven't had better yet. I especially like when it's fresh & warm from the press. The smell is intoxicating.

  2. I can almost taste it... I am so happy Finlay, Olivia, and Melissa are learning first hand the goodness of the Peloponnese olive groves.
