Salmon Salad With Feta Cheese Custard

Greeks view the olive, the bread and the wine as symbols of life. The olive, the fruit of the sacred tree, is processed in many ways. Oiled or vinegared, they accompany practically all dishes.

Bread is a necessary accompaniment to all meals. Often bread is served with Feta Cheese. Feta, which has been known in Greece for centuries, always accompanies their traditional country salad.

I won´t say this salad is a Greek dish even though many ingredients are items of a Greek Country Salad. I have been to Greece twice and never did I see Feta Custard on the menues. I wrote down this recipe several years ago and don´t remember where it originated. This salad is a meal in itself; tremendously tasty and healthy.
