Well, I have two things to say about that, first the Classic Greek Salad is one of the most requested catering items and it is also the most requested recipe from all my customers and followers of my blog. Second, because this salad is loved so much, everyone is really loving all of my recipes on how to incorporate that delicious flavor into other dishes.
With that said, wait till you taste this recipe, especially if you like Pizza. Most of you Pizza lovers are aware of the hundreds of variations out there in the Pizza world today. Everyone loves pizza and today you will find just about any food item on a pizza from cheeseburger to chicken alfredo.
My passion for Pizza comes from my passion for food which comes from my passion to eat. I love so many different types of food and my taste buds do not discriminate between healthy and non-healthy cuisine! Pizza is a favorite of mine and I love them all even the Ooey… Gooey ones topped with “The Works”, of course, I also love the healthier versions with vegetables and greens.
