Not So Greek Salad

Not so Greek Salad HOO Happiness Blog

I love a good greek salad and I love it more for giving us the idea to add olives to salad.  

It really makes it so good!

But a typical greek salad has feta cheese and as I try to live a more vegan lifestyle.

I found a way to make a greek salad that is Vegan but still so delicious.  

The trick - add pine nuts and avocados.  

Side note: does anyone else think that these two things can be added to 90% of the meals we eat....or is that just me?

This salad is best made right on the spot and is not very good when stored.

If you want to pre-make this salad to travel with then add the avocado and pine nuts after
