My Favorite Salad

This is my Go-To Salad!

It is so easy to put together, and tastes like a million bucks (but barely costs any bucks). Years ago when I used to go to a friend’s house for dinner; his mom would make a huge salad whenever she knew I would be there because she knew how much I loved her salads. After eating her salads a few dozen times, I finally started to pay attention to how she did it. After a few years (and never ever measuring) – here is my version of the best salad ever.

AND – just like every salad, feel free to adjust the greens and other things based on what you have on hand and what you like. Feel free to add croutons or leave out cucumber or whatever tickles your fancy that day. Play around with the vinegar to oil ratio or even substitute in your favorite kind of vinegars. ENJOY and let me know what you think!

Two Years Ago – Spanakorizo – my version of Spanikopita + Rice… this was amazing and we still talk about it, maybe we’ll have to re-photograph it one day soon for you!

And I leave you with this, Today’s Question of the Day… What is your favorite kind of salad?

(My answer: I LOVE Homemade Cesear Salad, I’ll have to share that recipe one day too – it is a little more involved and higher calorie than this one here though)
