This colorful, nutritious, and down right delicious salad makes an appearance at my house several times a month. It’s great for a snack, light lunch or dinner…or even to take along to a potluck, picnic or backyard summer bbq. It’s fresh, crunchy, has a super simple sweet and tangy dressing and is one of my favorite things to make in the summer.

Look at all those healthy ingredients!

I like to add the feta just before serving so it retains its salty punch.

The Cavender’s All Purpose Greek Seasoning is the key to the super flavorful dressing. I’ve never met a grocery store that didn’t carry it. It really makes the dressing pop.

It will keep well in the fridge for several days.

Hope you get a chance to try it!
