California Greek Salad – Diabetes Daily

This content originally appeared on ForGoodMeasure. Republished with permission.

Horiatiki or Greek Village Salad is a traditional mix of chunky tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, red onion and olives dressed in red wine vinegar & olive oil, sprinkled with oregano and topped with a wonderful slab of briny feta. Crisp & refreshing it almost calls for a lazy, seaside lunch in the afternoon sun.  While paying homage to tradition, my California Greek adds a little more substance through mixed greens, roasted tomatoes and a robust dressing. I like to think of it as the more formal, dinner version.
