Garden Vegetable Greek Salad– a delicious, fresh greek salad full of garden fresh vegetables and tons of flavor! Easy, low carb, and full of greek flavors!
My husband is crazy opinionated when it comes to many different foods.
He loves food- he’s not picky at all- but he’s very particular. He’s lived in some really amazing places, and visited many more… and he loves experiencing new foods. But he also really, really, knows what he likes!
And anytime I make greek style farmhouse salads with fresh vegetables…. I always hear about how much he loves simple greek salads, and how much it reminds him of briefly living in Greece.
And how I never make them right…. because I love crumbly feta, and he loves traditional slices of chunk feta.
It’s sort of my own little private joke how much my husband takes issue with the crumbled feta in this salad- he insists on slices of fresh feta, the kind swimming in a salty water that comes in a big chunk, not unlike tofu. I gently remind him that it’s not always available in our sleepy little Northern Colorado grocery stores (which we both know is a lie, I just love the crumbled kind so much…), and he goes on to reminisce about all the delicious fresh foods he’d tuck into in Athens.
I, however, love the feta crumbles. They are a little drier, a little saltier, and frankly- deceptive when it comes to how much you’re actually adding on.
(Yep, that is my fancy way of saying I prefer the crumbles because they let me trick myself into thinking I am eating less cheese, when I know full well I am going nuts for it!!)
A little bit of olive oil and lemon juice drizzled over the top, and you’re all set. It is so delicious, simple, and EASY!
This is my favorite recipe to serve in summer with dinner because it is so easy- and I always have extra cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes on hand.
It’s a great use for bountiful basket or farmer’s market goodies!
