Nice recipe but nothing to do with a real greek salad, which by law in greece has to contain cucumber, tomato, onions, green pepper, black olives and feta cheese. it does not contain lettuce and is dressed with olive oil and vinegar

I really liked this salad! It is the perfect way to get the most of the full flavor of in-season vegetables.

I loved the dressing, loved the feta cheese, and loved how healthy this salad was!
