Chunky Greek Salad

This is the salad I grew up with! No lettuce, never any other salad dressings. I love the chunky veggies! That's always my favorite part of any other salad anyways. Who's favorite part is the lettuce? Might as well skip it. The dressing is simple and light and the feta cheese gives just the right amount of sharpness. I won a bottle of Chile Olive Oil on Twitter and I used it in the dressing. It's the perfect base for this dressing and still has bold flavor on its own! I've had this salad with a chicken breast, pitas, and hummus for dinner numerous times! It's perfect when you're in the mood for something light. So flavorful!

  1. I had the tasty pleasure of making this deliciously healthy salad for lunch today. I served it with fresh roasted chicken with tomato, lettuce and
    spicy sauce on multi grain roll. Thank you for providing this recipe.
