Entertaining Tips:

  • Traditionally there is no lettuce or red pepper in the salad – but feel free to modify by adding your favorite leafy greens  or Mediterranean Organic Grilled Red Peppers
  • Often the feta cheese is not cut in cubes, but usually a large piece is placed on top, however cubes and crumbles taste just as delicious
  • Typically the salad is served in a shallow bowl and not mixed ahead of time
