Summer Greek Salad

Posted by  on Wednesday, July 14th, 2010 at 6:25 pm

Steve and I celebrated July 4th with some good old fashioned BBQing and fireworks. After the heat wave, hot dogs, and potato salads of the long weekend, we settled back into our summer salad routine. Our latest obsession, is this little number. Pair it with some hummus and toasted pita bread and enjoy some Mediterranean flair.
