The salads are where your aversion to seafood doesn’t do much to keep you from experiencing Mediterrenean cuisine.
There are a couple of options you can try.
Greek goddess Salad
Some chefs choose to prepare their Greek Goddess salad with shrimp, but this is a dish that preserves its taste even without. You may also find it offered with grilled chicken.
The variety of greens, including tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell pepper, makes for a lot of texture and flavor. It’s rounded by the slightly sharp tang of the olive oil.
Best of all, it leaves you feeling light and ready to move on to the next course.

The addition of dill creates a fresh, citrus-like taste, which also serves to underscore the slightly grassy undertone of the dish.
Greek village salad
This is, in essence, a traditional tomato and feta salad, but with cucumber, bell peppers, red onion, kalamata and black olives.
Small plate dishes:
