Awesome Greek Salad

May 29th, 2009 by katie

Wow!  If you thought Greek Salad was so-so, you haven’t tasted this salad.  I wanted a light side dish to go alongside our shrimp risotto and I knew the lemon and feta would pair well with a Greek salad.  I found this amazing salad at Janet is Hungry.  Greek salads can be really good-spicy and flavorful-or really boring.  This one is fantastic.

    Looks great! I love Greek salad. I spent a couple months in Greece two summers ago and ate it almost every day.

    I normally don’t add lemon juice but that sounds really good – I’ll try it next time.

    I also usually leave out lettuce completely and just increase the the cucumber, tomato, and onion (not saying it’s any better – just a different way to try it).

    I love Greek salad and this one sounds delish. Perfect for summer heat.

    I guess you’re right that it can be really good or boring. I think I’ve had ones right in the middle, so I don’t hate it or love it. I get so bored with our “usual” salad though, so I should probably think about this one. It does sound delicious.

    I can eat Greek Salad any day of the week, it is so good. This one is not boring at all! I have some feta so this would make a great dinner tonight. Thanks!

    A boring salad can really ruin a good day
