This recipe is super easy to adapt. Add your favorite vegetables, avocado, olives, feta and more. Fresh is best, but in a pinch I will use dried herbs from the pantry. I like to add a few dashes of Tajin seasoning.
Add your own dressing to the salad, Greek, Italian, just omit the olive oil and lemon juice in the recipe – this is a great base salad to experiment with.
This salad is excellent served as a side dish with grilled chicken, fish, burgers, steaks and more. Or serve your favorite protein on top.
