Mixed Salad With Feta and Golden Raisins

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by BamaKathy

This is from a cookbook by Maya Angelou, adapted slightly to suit our family. I tried this with my husband and son and now have to regularly stock the ingredients as they request it at least once or twice a week. I've never had a salad this good.

My DH loved this and now wants me to make the dressing to put on all our salads. I did cut down a bit on the garlic because we're not big garlic lovers. Thanks for a really good dressing.

  6. Tear lettuce into bite sized pieces and add to bowl.
