Recipe Notes

Do not keep the Salad at room temperature for long, since the greens would start releasing the water very soon and it will all be runny then

Feta cheese is delicious in  the salad, but since its  high in calories do not go overboard with it. 50-60 gms serves good for two portions/ persons.
