Wild Thyme, White Onion and Green Olives Salad


If you can get your hands on wild thyme, this is probably the best thing you can do with it! My grandmother used to make this salad for us in winter using wild thyme hand-picked from her garden in the village. A flavorful mix of three basic ingredients that work like magic together: wild thyme, white onion and green olives. The dressing is a simple classical one: lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and salt. Make sure you wash the thyme leaves well because they hold a lot of dirt. The additional touch (a basic one for my grandmother) is eating the salad with pita bread using your hands! That is the way I eat it.

  1. This is one of my favorite salads. My wife and I have it every other day. Also with pita of course. Some people might refer to the wild thyme as fresh oregano. All the same, a very satisfying salad.
