Serving Up {Salad}: Green Feta Salad

I love green salad!  It seems like there are endless possibilities and combinations out there.  I hosted a dinner at our home recently and the family joining us had some specific dietary restrictions.  As such, I was searching for some recipes on the internet that met their restrictions.  I wasn't specifically looking for a salad recipe, but in my search for other recipes, I stumbled upon this recipe and thought that I would welcome a new green salad recipe.  I am so glad that I did.

This recipe is very simple.  You could add additional add in's, but we kept it simple and it was a hit.
