Notes

This recipe is inspired by Canmores Mountain Mercato's AMAZING greek salad. I had the pleasure of learning it from the Chef and owner. The key? GOOD FRESH LOCAL ingredients. Especially the tomatoes! Buy the sweetest, tastiest tomatoes you can find.... as well as the best feta, the freshest olives, sweet peppers, and fresh thyme and basil. If you have all these things, you will have a killer greek salad.
