Greek Salad Recipe

Yesterday I had a craving for Greek Salad. I’m not sure what it was, but it was on my radar and I wasn’t willing to let it go so I popped on over to the supermarket and whipped up this salad in next to no time.

The beauty of Greek Salad is that it pairs beautifully with almost any protein (my favourite is grilled snapper) AND can even be eaten on it’s own, so don’t be shy. If you’re not a fan of dairy, swap traditional feta for goat’s feta as some find it easier to digest.

To be honest, I never used to be a fan of these flavours until we visited Greece a few years back, I remember the moment I was introduced to this traditional recipe and it was love at first bite πŸ™‚

Whilst I love the traditional varieties, I’ve added some extra greens to this salad, because let’s be honest, I’m a nutritionist and green leafy’s are everything. Enjoy!
