Considering Feta cheese and Kalamata olives are two of my favorite foods, it's no wonder I enjoy Greek salad as much as I do.
The key to a perfect Greek salad is to use fresh lemon juice, and to purchase good quality Feta and olives. Cheap Feta cheese is too salty, while cheap olives are definitely inferior in taste and not worth the money. For my London area readers, I would highly recommend you visit Perfect Bakery, located at 116 Hamilton Road here in London. Perfect Bakery offers a wide variety of European pastries and a good selection of Greek groceries, including the best sheep's milk Feta cheese and colossal Kalamata olives in the city.
