Veggie Tuesday

The hubby informed me he is planing a trip to Greece so to get ready he tried to get me to eat his Greek Salad. Hum I don't like cheese especially feta cheese. I don't care for olives at least not Kalamata olives I guess I am a picker eater. He claims that the Cavender's is the key to a great Greek salad that most people don't know about thanks to my Mom for teaching him about it. Cavender's has a bunch of spices all in one container I believe is has 13 different ingredients. The salads he makes have allot of ingredients and very little lettuce just the opposite of what I prefer, bring on the lettuce very little other items with tons of fattening dressing. The key to making a great Greek salad is the dressing. Be sure to have a supply of breath mints after you eat a Greek salad.

Mike cooks? I'm impressed. I'll have to keep my eyes open for Cavender's Greek seasoning. That's a new one for me.
