Yummy Greek Salad

Yummy Greek Salad

Who said Salad is boring? This recipe for Greek salad is not only tasty, flavorful and colorful, but it is also wholesome. I also have a few tasty variations from the norm – garbanzo beans and artichoke hearts. Garbanzo beans (Chick Peas) equalizes the ingredients, while the artichoke hearts adds a gourmet character to it! But it is very easy to make, and a must item for diet conscious, health conscious or taste conscious people! Enjoy!
