I've spent the last 31 years of my life despising olives. I would even try them from time to time just to make sure I still hated them. And yep ... still hated them.
Then, about a month ago, I was looking to change things up a bit and randomly ordered a Greek salad at a restaurant. Turns out, that's how olives are meant to be eaten. It was a completely new combination of tastes for me, and I've been hooked ever since. Best part? It's a super easy way to change up a boring old salad at home.
My favorite combination for a Greek salad:
cherry tomatoes from a friend's garden
tiny (or garden fresh) cucumbers
a mixture of black and green olives
balsamic vinaigrette or Greek dressing
Optional ingredients that I just haven't gotten around to getting:
Mix it all together, try something new and enjoy!
