Greek Inspired Salad
Updated: Feb 23, 2021
Since I can’t have feta (which makes the salad Greek), I put my own twist on the traditional Greek salad and it was incredible. So, if you're dairy free like I am, I beg you to try this lovely salad out. Let me show you how to make it! By the way, if you want to add protein I recommend sautéing shrimp or adding shredded chicken breast!
