Chilled Greek Veggie SaladPosted: February 3, 2011
Even though I usually grab at least one new dish at the Whole Foods hot bar each time I drop in, I always gravitate back to their Greek tomato salad. Artichokes, tomatoes, cucumbers, and feta in a tangy dressing? Yeah, I can’t see why I’d ever pass it up.
Oh, right. Because I accidentally bought $9 worth of it last time I was there.
How dat happen?
With the upcoming move putting a huge damper on my eating out budget, I decided to recreate a home version of my favorite veggie side.
It wasn’t a doppelganger, but delicious nonetheless!
See those beets?
They never made it into the salad.
I couldn’t open the jar. I tried for five minutes straight, but no dice. Back into the fridge they went.
Even still, there were more than enough other goodies to make up for it!
Though absent from the Whole Foods version, I added some asparagus and cauliflower for bulk. When it comes to veggies, the more, the merrier!
