I love everything about a refreshing Greek Salad! This salad has all of the authentic ingredients in a Greek Salad plus creamy avocado! February is Heart Health Month! Did you know a clinical study showed Mazola® Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, visit Mazola.com.
This mouthwatering Avocado Greek Salad is everything you want in a salad. It’s quick, easy, better for you, and jam-packed with flavor.
In this Avocado Greek Salad recipe, I swapped out olive oil and replaced it with heart-healthy corn oil so this salad is even more beneficial for you!
I like to cut my vegetables into bite-sized pieces so they are easy to eat without a knife. This dressing is so incredibly easy to make you will want to make this often. I like to keep my dressing in a mason jar and keep it in the fridge and use it throughout the week on other salads we make for dinner!
This Avocado Greek Salad is the perfect way to start a meal! Since these vegetables are so robust, you can prep this all before and let the veggies chill in the refrigerator. This salad is exceptional when served cold.
