Crunchy and refreshing greek salad is one of my personal favorites. Every time I would frequent my favorite Greek restaurant, I would savor the salad and wanted to learn to make it at home. I developed this recipe over the years and believe it is very close to the salads that inspired the attempt. Fresh ingredients and a good feta cheese make a big difference in the quality of the dish. Slightly zesty, with a slightly salty bite every once in a while, as the cucumbers compete with the spring mix and roasted peppers for texture changes while building a gorgeous flavor profile. The yogurt is the result of many attempts, I love how the zest from the lemon juice partners with the feta cheese, herbs and yogurt to form a creamy lightly tart taste that takes this salad to an experience worthy for any occasion as a side or a featured item.
I first posted this salad as a dish partner in a previous video. I received several request to provide the recipe. I appreciate the interest and am happy to provide the video and the instructions below so you can make this tasty salad in your home today. Please let me know if you try it send pictures.
