Temperatures in the United Arab Emirates this winter are set to hit the mid-twenties, offering a balmy heat. What better way to take time during a hot day, or relax on a warm evening than by indulging with food to help cool down. Salads are the perfect food to eat when it's warm, giving the body nutrients and vitamins lost in the heat, and also packing a quenching taste to give some chill. Here are a rundown of some of the more interesting salads on offer in Dubai.
1. Greek Salad at Eat Greek
The Greeks certainly do food well, and Greek takeaways offer an easy way of chowing down on a cuisine that's more difficult to make at home. The Greek Salad – a standard leafy mix tossed with olive oil and feta cheese fills the standard salad with creamy flavour and the tang of extra virgin Greek olive oil. Eat Greek offer the traditional Greek salad while also serving up variations of the Caesar Salad for the chicken lovers, and a speciality salad from Crete, the juicy Cretan Dakos Salad.
