Greek salad..... to say the Greeks left a culinary mark on the planet would be an understatement, This dish, loved worldwide and when made with more love - today with Sue & Kami, can only be described as heaven on a plate; and the plate played a big part too in creating this amazing dish full of bold flavours. We mixed it up a little with herbs from our kitchen garden, fresh and vibrant, using beautiful olives, the freshest tomatoes, creamy feta and a splash or two of good greek olive oil. See for yourself and thankyou girls for the beautiful presentation.

My invitation is to get involved, connect, look for the perfection in all the imperfection as you create, use your hands, chop randomly, rip, feel, squidge, toss, smell, taste, wake up and evoke all your senses and the salad will be perfect!  Play some Greek music, share a little wine together and remember as you cook, smile 🙂 my guess is you already are...... it will make all the difference......... heaven on a plate.
