Raspberry Greek Salad Recipe

“An interesting combination of sweet and salty flavors gives this Greek salad a delicious twist. And the tart chewiness of the dried cranberries makes a wonderful complement to the salty feta cheese. I often take this to work for lunch,” says Carine Nadel in Laguna Hills, California.
