Katie’s  Notes for Greek Salad:

1.  I never use this much onion….more like ½ what the recipe calls for at most.

2.  You could probably use crumbled feta and it would be easier than cutting a block.

3.  I find it is easier to cut the feta if you put it in the freezer for a few minutes.  Also, feta breaks down when you mix it and add the dressing, so I tend to wait to add it until I am ready to serve the dish.
