This salad goes particularly well with lamb, which is a traditional dish in many places at Easter. It could be served with the Greek Easter Lamb dish, leaving out the sliced potatoes.


1. Slice the potatoes. Chop the onions and cut the eggs into wedges. Mix together with the olives and lettuce.

2. Mix the water, sugar and vinegar together and toss the salad in it.

3. Sprinkle liberally with olive oil.
