I came up with this one day when I was in the mood for a 'non-traditional' tossed salad, and found out my lettuce had gone bad. I ate the 'toppings' instead, and liked it better! You can use scoops of this to top a green salad, if you prefer. The recipe halves nicely, as well.

This is my kind of salad. I added crumbled bacon and avocados because why not right? Just put in everything you love best about salads. For me it's not the lettuce!:) Read More

Hmmm there is a reason you should eat this on lettuce because it needs more texture. Maybe diced carrots celery or something crunchy...otherwise all of the ingredients are very similar - soft. Also I would recommend cutting back on the feta; the flavor overpowers the dill and dressing. I think with some adjustments this could be good but as-is I give it two stars. Read More

Absolutely loved it! I did add mixed greens (not too many). I will make it again however I found that it does not take 20 minutes to prepare. By the time you rinse some of the ingredients and chop the others its longer. Still it's a winner! Read More
