    Sorry to say, garlic has no place in a Greek salad. I'm 100% Greek, use a great deal of garlic, but not in a Greek salad. I live in Greece part of the year and have never encountered garlic in a traditional Greek salad.

    Very easy and delicious salad. I jazzed up the dressing a bit by adding dry mustard, creamed horseradish, fresh lemon juice and a few more herbs. I found the oil to vinegar ratio was not accurate so I had to add a bit more oil.
