Summer Favorite – Crispy Greek Salad
Greek salad has always been a favorite of ours! It’s super easy to make, tastes great, and it’s healthy, too! Here’s how to make it!
We love eating Greek salad – especially in the summer! Although it’s good to eat all year, this salad goes great with summer BBQ steak and chicken. Crispy romaine lettuce, kalamata olives, grape tomates, and feta cheese taste delicious tossed with a signature Greek dressing. You can serve this salad as a side, or have it as your main meal. I find this salad tastes best when you combine all the ingredients (toss everything with the salad dressing) and let it sit in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. The colorful greens and veggies look fantastic on a nice big plate and the aroma is completely tempting!
