Ideal for the busy bees amongst us, Greek Salad is extremely easy to prepare, tastes amazing and is super healthy! We’ve made this a little healthier by using half fat feta cheese instead of full fat to save on a few calories. The other super calorific ingredient is olive oil which, while extremely good for you as it’s full of good fats, it’s very very high in calories so please go easy. If you’re taking a packed lunch to work you can prepare a large batch of Greek Salad and store it in the fridge for the next few days.
