Simple Greek Salad

Yum

This fresh Greek inspired salad is a versatile side dish that will make any meal tasty and delicious.   

Simple food is always good in my opinion. I took simple fresh salad ingredients that I always have in my fridge and then made an even more simple dressing.  This dressing was so tasty that I wanted to eat with a spoon.  

My family and I ate this over grilled fish for a light summer meal.  The weather is hot these days so I want salad to be the star of every meal we gather around.  This salad was definitely the star of our meal.

I should have actually doubled my salad because we were all asking for seconds of the salad and even scraping the dressing off our plates with our forks to get every last drop. 

I am so happy my kids are finally getting into things like olives and feta cheese (my son used to sneer at the mere mention of olives).   

My son also detested fresh tomatoes, but now he relishes them.  My tip for parents of picky eaters is to never give up on them.  Unless they have an allergy to a particular food, just keep those "icky" ingredients showing up in their meals.  They will have to learn to pick them out or they can just try them.  Hopefully your kids will eventually just want to eat them too.  My son has overcome his dislike of onions, olives, tomatoes, green beans and mushrooms.  We are still working on some like eggplant and zucchini, but there is still hope.  Just remember to make the ingredients small so eating them doesn't seem like such a big mountain to climb.
