We love a good salad around here and this one is one of our favourites! Simple in ingredients (and ones we usually already have on hand) and so incredibly quick to put together. That’s my kind of side dish!

This salad gives off lovely, simple Greek flavours similar to a Greek salad. Good quality olive oil, oregano and feta cheese. Yes please to all of the above! It’s probably my Greek girl genes coming into play here but I am always down for some feta.
