Greek Garden Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
In the summer, when my garden vegetables are in abundance, I serve this salad. We eat this pretty blend often. It's handy to make with convenient bottled Italian dressing. But don't put the dressing on too early or the vegetables will get too soggy.—Glenda Parsonage, Maple Creek, Saskatchewan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 1, 2011

"This was the BEST cucumber salad ever. My mom always makes cucumbers and tomatoes with Italian dressing, that is ok, but this receipe is FANTATIC! The feta gives it such a nice punch. I did leave out the green onions and the sweet red pepper as I did not have those on hand. And left out the lettuce leafs as they were just for looks. But as I said it was great! Note once you put the dressing on you need to eat it. It does not hold well, so only make what your family will eat at the time. Great use of my garden bounty. Will be making again and again!"
