It’s so fresh and SO pretty. Not only that it’s packed with all-kinds-of Mediterranean flavor. This is an excellent salad to throw together with so many garden veggies like cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion. Chop, slice and dice up everything, blend together your dressing (I used Clover Farms Cottage Cheese, because quite frankly it’s the best), and toss to coat. I had some whole wheat pitas handy so I made quick pita chips by brushing my pitas with olive oil and sprinkling with seas salt then baking at 350 until crisp. They were the perfect match to this salad. 

Do you like Mediterranean? I’ve shared my Mediterranean Salad with A Creamy Feta Dressing and Skinny Greek Dip (both of which are fantastic). I’m excited to add this salad to the list. Add this next time you’re having gyros or kebabs. The best part is leftovers refrigerate really well!
