Greek Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette

Greek Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette

One of my favorite parts of summer time is all the good food I get to eat. From cookouts to summer vacays, I'm always trying new foods and revisiting my summer favorites. Ever since I started eating meat again, I've enjoyed summer food even more because I can eat turkey burgers LOL.  I love a good summer salad and this summer I've eaten a salad for lunch almost every week. Greek salad is one of my favorite salads because it's jam packed with delicious veggies and flavor! I typically make it with some grilled chicken and a red wine vinaigrette like below: 

Enjoy!
