New Recipe of the Week: Greek Salad

New Recipe of the Week: Greek Salad

This delicious recipe for Greek Salad can not only be enjoyed for one day, but throughout the week! A great way to save time is to make all ingredients at the beginning of the week, and makes an easy way to make individual portions. I like to cut up all the vegetables at one time and store in vegetable saver storage containers. The homemade Greek dressing can serve up to 8 individual servings.
