Horta Salad - Greek Amaranthus Blitum Salad
Greek greens salad, or horta (HOR-tah) salad — bursting with the flavours of late summer blitum — can be eaten as a healthful side dish or a simple first course. Horta salad was a main staple of the ancient Greek diet and continues to be in modern Greece! Amaranthus blitum is a Mediterranean variety of greens, which is at its peak in late summer and fall. This Greek staple is easy to prepare, and when dressed with a bit of olive oil and lemon has a refreshing, clean taste.
