Gorgeous Greek Salad; Day 28

Delicious fresh salad ingredients are easy to come by in the Mediterranean.

Today we will be re-creating a Greek Salad.

The crisp green lettuce leaves, and bite of sweet tomatoes break up the creaminess of feta cheese.

    I don’t know how you are keeping up with the recipes, photographing, and documenting it all! What’s the most interesting thing, so far, that you’ve learned or gained from this challenge? This salad looks so fresh and inviting…congrats on the challenge! Once my kitchen renovations are complete, I want to do the same!

      Thanks so much for the comment!

      I think my biggest challenge was coming home after a long day at uni and work and having to think about not only cooking but making it look gorgeous.

      I have loved being challenged to not spend money on food out – cooking your own food makes you appreciate your own taste buds. Food out now feels almost disappointing especially in NZ where it is quite expensive.

      I would love to read your version of the challenge – hope you get to do it! It is lots of fun 🙂
