Debate arose about a 'miserly & # 39; Greek salad that was sold at a festival

& # 39; This hurts to watch & # 39 ;: Debate arose about & gdashy & # 39; Greek salad that was sold at a festival

  • The Semaphore Greek Festival was held on 13 and 14 January in Adelaide
  • Jo Gilgen had served a Greek salad during the event – but it was anything but typical
  • There was hardly any feta included and came with Italian dressing on the side
  • After uploading a photo of the offensive green, the internet was divided

The humble Greek salad is always a crowd puller at any outdoor party or sit down.

Very easy to prepare – and especially tasty – the few ingredients it requires are easy to find and will not destroy the bank.

But for a participant at the Semaphore Greek Festival in Adelaide their salad-eating experience was less than satisfying – especially because of the stingy & # 39; make-up of the dish.

An image of the offensive Greek salad was posted on Instagram and discouraged thousands of social media users.

It is clear that the Italians have invented the Greek salad, & # 39; a person joked, pointing to the fact that the dressing is including the land of pizza and gelato.

& # 39; The biggest problem here is a lack of feta, & # 39; another added.

Others had trouble with the fact that it contained iceberg lettuce, which is not a traditional ingredient.

Usually the salad is made with tomato, sliced ​​cucumber, green pepper, sliced ​​red onion, Kalamata olives and feta cheese.

It should be seasoned with dried oregano and salt and dressed with a good quality extra virgin olive oil and a dash of red wine vinegar.

Some were so uninspired by the approach they presented at the weekend that they said it was heartbreaking & # 39; and # 39; hard to watch & # 39; used to be.

It is not known who made the side dish, but some fans at the festival blamed huge numbers of people on the sloppy salad.

"There were more than 15,000 people and long queues when waiting for food", said one person. & # 39; Maybe that's why. & # 39;
