Looking for a super fast, super delish summer salad? This is it! It isn’t new and I didn’t originally create it, but I do put my own spin on it with the addition of the mint and extra pepper.
One of the keys to this salad is to spend the money on a REALLY GOOD block of feta cheese. It will make a difference.
Fresh, sweet, creamy, crunchy and a good dash of spice – this is your new go to salad!
