A great salad, a loaf of bread, a jug of wine and…

The best salad I’ve eaten in recent years came not from a restaurant, nor from my own kitchen, but from Fresh Market.  They call it their Greek salad.

Not the crummy crumbly flavorless Feta found in your average supermarket, but  chunks of genuine,  fresh, delicious Feta that comes packed in its own liquid. The whole works is tossed in a lovely Feta-thickened Greek vinaigrette.  One order of this at $5.99 is a bargain for two people. Some good bread, a glass of wine….
