greek salad – cool summer salad

Tossing a few ingredients together, you can serve this beautiful, crunchy and healthy Greek summer salad within minutes.  Remember to mix the veggies with the salad dressing just before the mealtime.  Until then, store the salad bowl in the fridge so that the veggies will stay cool and fresh.

This salad dressing is the basic but the most delicious and healthy one out of all kinds of varieties.  This indeed is the only one that keeps the veggies in their original fresh looks and gives a very satisfying taste too. If you need a variation, add plain yoghurts into the original dressing and whisk thoroughly and mix with the veggies until all combines finely.

I never buy various salad dressings available on supermarket shelves because they can never live up to the homemade dressings that are made with simple and healthy ingredients. So, I believe you will get inspired by this recipe and make delicious salad dressings with your own signature on them!
