Greek Salad w/ Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette

This is a fairly simple salad to make that has really great, fresh Mediterranean flavors!

Lots of fresh veggies, a homemade vinaigrette, and crunchy delicate mixed greens- yum!


You can prepare this a few days ahead for work lunches (just be sure to leave the dressing on the side when preparing :))


This would also be a great salad to bring for holiday parties! For my vegans, I would substitute the feta with Daiya cheese crumbles for a great alternative.


You could also add a little Bragg's nutritional yeast powder for some extra nutrients and flavor, I hope you all enjoy!
