When we traveled to Greece, Greek salad was on the menu every day. All of the Greek food we ate was delicious and the salads were some of the best we had ever had. Fresh juicy tomatoes, crunchy bell peppers, crisp cucumbers- you get the idea! When we got home Greek salad was on the family table often.
This recpe is super healthy (especially if you use sheep feta) and keto diet friendly. Below you can see that this delicious salad can be made as a vegan Greek salad, Paleo Greek salad, or a chicken Greek salad. Enjoy!
