Greek Salad

I’m just going to come right out of the gate and say that I’m not a big fan of Feta Cheese. This recipe is here because it was requested that I make it. So, I did!

I think it’s very pretty, very healthy, full of colors and nutrients. I have some friends that grow sprouts and supply local restaurants. They brought over some lovely sunflower sprouts for me, on that day. (Side note: sprouts are awesome foodstuffs. Tasty, varied, full of nutrients and one of the only things people eat, while it’s still alive!)

I tasted the salad and … it was yummy! If there were ever a way to sneak some Feta cheese into my life, this salad would probably be the best vehicle for it.

I still don’t like Feta, though …

I like cheese. I like pickles. Picked cheese is … blech.

Don’t let my odd bird tastes sway you, though. It’s a good salad. Enjoy the salad!
