summer salad #4

Get thee to the Greek

 

If you’re lucky to find yourself at a cottage this summer, here is the perfect
salad for a leisurely lunch on the dock. It packs a little sweet, a little salty and a big punch of protein with tuna, chickpeas and feta. After her first mouthful,
Alison declared me “the queen of salads.” Now you can be queen, too.
