Greeks also dye eggs other colors, but no Greek would ever celebrate Easter without red eggs for all! This lettuce and egg salad is a great way to use all those red eggs (and other color you choose) for dinner.

Greek Style Lettuce and Egg Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 heads lettuce
  • 3 hard boiled eggs
  • Cooked peas, optional
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (or use lemon juice) vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons, chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon, chopped dill
  • Salt
  • Pepper

How to Make Greek Style Lettuce and Egg Salad:

Clean any yellow leaves from the lettuce. Wash the lettuce very well and cut in pieces.

Chop the onion and dill.

Peel the eggs and cut in medium size pieces (6 pieces to an egg), cutting 1 egg in round slices.

Mix the lettuce, eggs, peas (optional), onion and dill in a glass bowl. Lay the egg slices on top.  Pour oil, vinegar or lemon juice over the salad and salt to taste.
