I don’t know about you, but when the weather starts heating up I would do almost anything to avoid having to actually cook! I want foods that are fresh and easy and can come together in less than ten minutes. This easy Greek salad is the perfect solution to my lazy summer cooking style.

Not only is it absolutely delicious, it requires simple and fresh ingredients. It is perfectly yummy all by itself, but it is also great served with grilled chicken or shrimp for an effortless meal your whole family will love!

Assemble your Greek salad ingredients: Romaine hearts, black pepper, Italian seasoning, mustard, olive oil, lemons, garlic, red onion, cucumber, green pepper, tomatoes, olives and feta cheese.
