Greek Salad

A classic greek salad is a great spring lunch! This recipe elevates the standard recipe by adding marinated artichoke hearts and tiny pickled peppers. I am so excited that spring is in full swing, and if your local farmers market has pretty romaine lettuce that would be amazing. The dressing is bright and flavorful and the feta and Kalamata olives are briny and delicious. You can find more fun salad recipes here and here!
