I have been a little MIA and I’m sorry about that!

Summer has been super busy, and we are just a couple weeks away from welcoming baby #5… quite frankly, I’m exhausted!

That being said — I wanted to share this EASY 10 minute Greek Salad recipe I’ve been living off of during my third trimester. I shared it on a couple of TV stations recently and have enjoyed eating the leftovers for a simple lunch or quick snack.

This recipe is very easy and super refreshing… absolutely perfect for summer.
