It’s too hot to cook, and that’s why we are serving up this quick and fresh Marinated Greek Salad. It features fresh and vibrant produce, salty sharp feta, and a punch of brine-soaked olives. Each bite is swimming in a simple and bright vinaigrette with hints of citrus, biting balsamic, and silky olive oil. Enjoy this dish with pita or as a topping for hummus.
Enjoy this dish with a Greek Assyrtiko, or a light and zesty white wine of your choice.
