    I do love a good Greek salad! Chick Peas would be a nice addition too, and that way it would still remain meatless.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    Greek salad is a staple at our house, especially during the summer when cucumbers are growing in the garden. I definitely recommend chunk feta in a brine that you crumble on the salad yourself. It’s the best!
