Greek Salad Recipe with Homemade Greek Salad Dressing



I enjoy making and eating salads... I have already shared a grilled chicken salad recipe which was my all time favourite. Now this has become my favourite. Not only because it is easy to make but it is really delicious and fresh tasting salad. 



I wanted to make authentic greek salad for a very long time. I have tasted it during my vacations a lot of time. In my place i couldn't find feta cheese that is the only reason i stayed away from it so long. Finally hubby got me couple packs of feta cheese from russia and i made this immediately and enjoyed it for lunch, ofcourse i skipped the lunch since this is a complete food on its own.


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
