Simply Classic Greek Salad

Nothing gets me more excited about spring than fresh produce. I’m already craving fresh fruits, and crispy veggies with this change of season, and I can’t wait for all of the flowers to bloom! A perfect springtime salad to add to your routine is this Simply Classic Greek Salad – topped with creamy feta, crispy bell peppers, and hydrating cucumbers. I love to add black olives, red pepper, and local arugula microgreens as well. YUM!

    Greek salad is a staple at every Greek dinner table! This salad could be altered depending on what’s on hand, just like they do in Greece. However, I love your version!
