Salad, salad, salad. With this nice, hot, weather there is nothing that I rather eat than salad! Do you recognise this feeling? You can make so many different ones, I can them every single day for lunch and dinner!
In Greece they really know how to cook, at least that is my opinion. Stuffed zucchini flowers, oven baked feta, stuffed rice leaves with the most delicious rice… I can go on and on.
One of the dishes that really is a family favourite is Greek salad. First of all an excellent way to eat lots of vegetables, but also a great combination of flavours and textures. The freshness and juiciness of the raw veggies is something we love. And it gets even better by adding the tender and salty feta cheese. Oh yes, it is really a salad that will get you hooked!
