Greek Isles Salad?  Did I mean a Greek salad?  Well sort of.  Think if this salad as the kitchen sink of Greek Salads.  I threw in as many Greek flavors and foods as I could.  There are just so many wonderful Greek vegetables, fruits and flavors that I couldn’t narrow it down to just a few, so I used them all.  I like to be a little crazy like that.

I know I have done quite a bit of Greek or Greek inspired recipes and I’ve told you all about my trip to Greece as a kid.  So, I won’t repeat all of that.  Maybe I won’t talk about this recipe at all.  I’ll just let you drool over the pictures and recipe.  It is so simple and really doesn’t need any great explanation.  You chop and drop.  That is pretty much it.

This is the kind of recipe I need in the summer.  My little one is already out of school for the summer and I am vacillating between being excited to spend lots of time with her and do lots of fun things and stressing over working on the blog.  The time goes so quickly that I want to enjoy my time with her this summer.  Her top priority is the pool.  She is a good little swimmer and loves it.  When she was a baby, we lived in Florida and had a pool.  She was in the pool from about 6 months old.  She adored splashing around and swimming.  We took her for swim survival lessons with Infant Swim Resource.  It was a little tough to get through the lessons but worked beautifully.  My little fish just loves to be in the water.

She also has picked out recipes from her Princess Cookbooks for us to make over the summer.  I’m hoping she will let me modify them a little to make them more healthy, though.  I’m going to let her take some of the pictures and maybe write a little bit about them.  That way I can get some work done and still have fun with her.  Be prepared for tea cakes, cupcakes, cookies, popsicles – all fun girly foods.  I’ll throw in some salads and grilling recipes too.  Sounds like a plan?  I hope so.  There will also be some recipes for the Fathers and Men in our lives.  We can’t forget Father’s Day.

  1. Yum!

    It looks so fresh and tasty.
  3. I love Greek salads, so I love yours that goes just a little further. I went to Greece a few years ago, and I actually don't think I had any salads there (but randomly had the most amazing pasta in my life, and I was in Athens immediately after 3 days in Italy. Go figure)

      Hi Kelly, Greece and Italy are too fantastic food places. We went when I was a kid and would love to go back. I'm not sure how authentically Greek a Greek Salad is but at least it has a lot of traditional flavors in it. They are so delicious too. It sounds like you had a fantastic trip!
  4. Oh I love this salad! I happen to eat green salad almost every day, and these combinations of ingredients and flavors are just for me Btw - Greek salad is very popular around here
