Greek Salad

Usually on Sunday nights, I go home and eat of bowl of Kashi cereal. After cooking, tasting, smelling, and handling food all afternoon, my olfactory receptors are overloaded and my tummy refuses to receive any of that yummy food I cooked.

But this past Sunday, I took home some of this refreshing Greek salad. It was so delicious even though the Romaine lettuce has lost some of its vigor.

This would be a perfect warm weather supper, topped with grilled chicken or salmon!

  1. I just saw another of your posts on FB and clicked here to see this delish salad. We used the exact same words today - olfactory receptors. Great minds think alike!
