My Favorite Greek Salad with Homemade Whole Wheat Pita.

My Favorite Greek Salad with Homemade Whole Wheat Pita.

I’m totally cheating.

Like super cheating. I’m only telling you about FIVE ingredients today – five ingredients in my favorite salad. A salad that can be lettuceless too, which is even better.

At least, five star ingredients. Buying it?

Boom. One two three four five.

Okay, maybe a few extra ingredients. There is a dressing. My crazy favorite salad dressing, slightly adapted from one in my cookbook and while it pairs fantastically with this greek salad, it works on all salads. All salads! Make a big batch and keep it in your fridge.
