Instructions

1.First make the vinaigrette by whisking together the Lemon Balsamic with the mustard, honey, Aleppo Chile Flakes, salt and It's Greek to Me Blend. Slowly drizzle in the Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Taste and adjust with salt if needed. Set aside.
2.As you prep the vegetables, they should be no larger than the size of a halved cherry tomato. You’re looking for a chopped salad with pieces being similar sizes. In a large bowl, create the salad by combining the tomato, cucumber, onion, bell pepper, garbazo beans, olives, arugula, parsley or mint.
3.Pour the dressing over the vegetables and allow to sit for about 5 mins for the vinaigrette to absorb and soften the vegetables. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper.
4.Pack into pita pockets and garnish with Marinated Feta. This makes quite a bit of salad, but it keeps well in the fridge. Use as a side. Wonderful for topping hummus. A great salad "bed" for grilled chicken.
