This week it's all about the Scrumptious Salads! Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures said "May is Salad Month so let's get on board with late spring and early summer produce.  Share your favorite recipes for a side salad, hearty dinner salad, or even a breakfast salad."

I adore, ADORE, Greek Salads. I've gotten super hooked on them thanks to lunch deliveries from a local restaurant near work called Mediterranean Grill that makes THE BEST Greek Salads. Perfect ratios of fresh vegetables, and gorgeous flavorful grilled chicken. Yummmm... I miss those!

I decided to make an easy Greek Salad to share for today that has a delicious homemade vinaigrette that works beautifully on this pile of fresh veggies. Mix and match the vegetables to your preference (I am not a fan of raw bell pepper and onion, but those would both work great in this if you enjoy them!) I added in an avocado because I had one and love avocado in salads - but of course omit if you don't enjoy them! Salads are so flexible. The key is the dressing - and this one has a lovely balance of flavors. I thought it was just perfect.

Since this doesn't include meat, you can use it as a side salad, a meatless entree, or grill up some tasty shrimp or chicken and have a salad with protein! You could double the recipe for the vinaigrette and marinate some chicken or shrimp in that before cooking - I am sure that would be fantastic!

Come see all of these delicious salad options!
