Lettuce-Free Salad

Recipe by  

"I came up with this one day when I was in the mood for a 'non-traditional' tossed salad, and found out my lettuce had gone bad. I ate the 'toppings' instead, and liked it better! You can use scoops of this to top a green salad, if you prefer. The recipe halves nicely, as well."

This is my kind of salad. I added crumbled bacon and avocados, because, why not, right? Just put in everything you love best about salads. For me, it's not the lettuce! :)

I placed the salad on a bed of lettuce and my family completely enjoyed this. I will make it again for sure.

Hmmm, there is a reason you should eat this on lettuce, because it needs more texture. Maybe diced carrots, celery, or something crunchy...otherwise all of the ingredients are very similar - soft. Also, I would recommend cutting back on the feta; the flavor overpowers the dill and dressing. I think with some adjustments this could be good, but as-is I give it two stars.

Tasty, nutritous, easy to prepare. What more can one want? I just got home from a potluck where I brought this dish. I have some left over, but wish it were more. I will be making this again!
