Excerpt from SF Chronicle 05/06/98 Food Section see ; Busted by HANNEMAN Notes: This salad in Cyprus is much like a typical Greek salad, but more varied and full of whatever herbs and greens the garden might yield. Garlic, olives and lemon are always there; everything else might vary. The following is one of my recent favorites: lots of rocket and fresh herbs. *CUCUMBER: If using a hothouse cucumber, leave the peel on; if using an American-type cucumber, peel it. **OLIVES: cracked green or salt-cured slightly dry black olives, or a combination of different types.
