Red Square in Moscow saw the largest Greek salad ever created on September 4th. Mouzenidis Travel and Ellinair were the driving spirit behind this effort which required a total of 20 tons of food.
Over a thousand volunteers worked to make the salad, taking about 2 hours. Materials included 7 tons of tomatoes, 7 tons of cucumbers, 2 tons of olives 2.5 tons of feta, 1 ton of onions, a half ton of olive oil, 80 kilos of salt, and 50 kilos of oregano. The 20 tons smashes the previous record of 13 tons, 417 kilos, put together on June 19, 2010 in Ierapetra, Crete.
The event was part of a greater ongoing year-long celebration of the more than millennia-long relationship between Greece and Russia which began when two Greek Orthodox brothers, Saints Cyril and Methodius, brought the gospel to the Slavic peoples of eastern Europe and Russia in the 9th century.
