This was a little salad that I have been wanting to try for a while now and I finally found the perfect meal to include it with. I served this salad with the Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Greek Aioli and we devoured it. It was the perfect light and flavorful side dish to accompany the Greek flavors of the pork and the aioli.
Ok, let's be honest...this salad would be the perfect accompaniment to any summer dish.
