Greek salad is one of my all time favourite salads. If made properly with really fresh produce it should have lots of crunch, balanced with the creaminess of the feta. I prefer to use a good marinated feta such as Margret River Marinated Feta or South Cape Marinated Feta. However, you can use a plain feta if you prefer a less aromatic greek salad.
