Easy Greek Salad

Most days when I’m packing my lunch for work I usually just throw a bunch of different things in a Tupperware as I’m making my breakfast and hope for the best.  Instead of just winging it this week I decided to throw together an easy Greek salad that’s full of vegetables and protein to change things up.

Easy Greek SaladThe thing I love about making an easy Greek Salad is that it’s so versatile.  Want artichokes?  Toss them in there.  Don’t like olives?  (although I can’t imagine why) leave them out.  Want to add quinoa? Go for it.  The one thing this salad definitely needs is feta, so if you don’t add feta you are definitely missing out.

I made a giant bowl of this salad and then portioned it out for the week.  Healthy, easy, and reduces my lunch prep in the morning.  Wins all around.
