Greek Salad

About This Recipe:

Greek salad is a must any time that I eat at a Greek restaurant. It is by far my favorite salad, and is super simple and quick to put together. This salad is only as good as the ingredients, so I get the juiciest, ripest tomatoes that I can find and highly recommend using seedless (or just de-seeding) the cucumbers. I also love using blocks of feta instead of buying crumbled feta- I think it makes a huge difference. And my last tip is to soak the sliced onions in cold water for at least 10 minutes to remove that harsh raw flavor.

Enjoy!
