Mediterranean food is my absolute favorite! The flavors are vibrant–lemon, garlic, cucumber, tomato, and so on! This is the freshest, most flavorful salad you’ll find! Our Classic Greek Salad and Vinaigrette uses In Fine Taste’s Greek Seasoning Blend for the delicious Greek salad dressing. It’s all so easy and so nutritious!
Nutritious! Colorful! Easy!
Classic Greek Salad is a powerhouse of protein, vitamins and minerals. And can you say “color”? This salad is a rainbow of good eating. The base is Romaine Lettuce. Cucumbers, tomatoes, Garbanzo beans, red onion, Feta cheese, and a variety of olives all top the Romaine. You’ve got flavors from sweet and savory to snappy and spicy.
Did we say Crunch?
And there’s a kaleidoscope of textures: crunchy, creamy, smooth, crisp, and tender. I love anything that crunches! This salad is filled to the brim with crunch from cucumbers, red onion, and Romaine lettuce.
That Snappy Vinaigrette
The vinaigrette, made with our delicious Greek Seasoning Blend, is quick to make. You can make the seasoning blend and store it to use in a variety of recipes!
Our vinaigrette has only four simple ingredients. You can whip it up then store it in the refrigerator where it will last about two weeks. For a meal, just pull some meat from a rotisserie chicken and you’ll have a complete dinner in less than 15 minutes.
