Greek SaladWhile browsing through one of my cookbooks, DIABETIC COOKING FOR ONE by Don Orwell, I stumbled upon this easy to prepare Greek Salad recipe.

Why do I like this Greek salad?  It has tomatoes and lettuce.  Many Greek salads do not include lettuce.  It has an easy to prepare dressing and a whole lot of feta cheese.  Who wouldn’t love that?

Greek salad can be served as a side dish or as a light meal with some crusty bread.
