Oh yes it is! It's so simple to make and best enjoyed in the summer when veggies are at their peak. Fresh, ripe tomatoes are especially important for maximum flavor. Hope you love it too!

I made this tonight and we loved it. I used Perino tomatoes halved, a Lebanese cucumber and I halved the dressing quantity. Not have any chickpeas, I used an avocado. Delicious!
Made this wonderful greek salad to go with my bbq dinner today -- it will add a nice fresh and healthy addition to my meal. The only change I made was to add kalamata olives to the salad and I added a little fresh lemon juice to the dressing which is delicious. Made for PRMR, May, 2014.
