Greek Salad Recipes have always been a diet staple of mine because the flavors are SO good, and it’s easy to make a large, satisfying serving that doesn’t sacrifice the taste, but is still low in calories. By making your Greek Salad Dressing, instead of buying store bought, not only is it healthier, but is tastes SO fresh and delicious! With the added flavors of the Kalamata olives and the fat free Feta cheese, this salad tastes so good, it’s hard to believe it’s only 4 Points for a huge 3 cup serving. Though not an official one of Weight Watchers Salad Recipes, it’s the perfect healthy lunch idea or dinner for anyone counting calories but still wanting a filling dish.
