"How can you say this is a traditional Greek salad with no green peppers and no Greek olives not to mention no lettuce in a traditional Greek salad"

"Very delicious and simple salad, went very well with Greek pork Chops. It's a lovely fresh and crisp salad to serve with any meal, honestly. I love the dressing. The only things I changed was I used Romaine lettuce in place of Iceberg, and in the dressing I used balsamic vinegar because I suddenly realized I was out of red wine vinegar. It worked out very well."
