Greek Salad Adventures with #Organic Oregano

Every week we make a large bowl of Greek Salad. We make it large enough to last a family of 4 about 3-5 days depending on our appetites. We started this weekly tradition about 5 years ago, what started off as a basic Greek salad has evolved over the years into a Mediterranean dream salad! We don't use lettuce, instead we use spinach because it offers a much more nutritious base for the salad. From there we add capers, onions, cucumbers, sweet peppers, celery, plum tomatoes, green apples, black olives, green olives, feta and when the mood strikes... some cheddar cheese. Everything is finely diced. One of my husband's pet peeves is vegetable chunks in a salad. If we chop things any finer we might as well start using a food processor. We topped the salad off with some dried organic Oregano from Joy's Teaspoon, my husband was impressed with the scent and flavor of the oregano. We do not use it sparingly in this salad, in fact both the homemade Greek dressing and the salad rely heavily on oregano as a seasoning. Joy's Teaspoon did not let us down!The end result was a delicious and rather beautiful salad.
