*This very simple salad. This can be made in advance and by adding grilled chicken it is a complete meal already. I used feta cheese made with sheep’s milk. I find it creamier, it has less calories and fat. The real feta cheese is made with sheep’s milk or goat. In Europe you will never find feta cheese made with cow’s milk and if you do it is very rare. One of the best feta cheese I have tried is Bulgarian feta cheese beside the Greeks. enJOY!!!
