The Salad That Has It All

Imagine a bowl filled with the crispiness of lettuce, the juicy pop of cherry tomatoes, the cool crunch of cucumbers, and the sweet bite of red pepper. To this, add the sharpness of red onion, the creamy goodness of avocado, the tangy tease of Feta cheese, and the rich contrast of black olives. But we don’t stop there. The dressing—a harmonious blend of lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper, salt, and dried oregano—drizzles over the salad, marrying the flavors into a symphony that dances on your palate.
