My family loves Greek Salad. It is a salad my dad introduced my family to. There is no right or wrong proportions of anything. This is just an idea of what you could do. My family LOVES the feta so they add a whole bunch. Play with the proportions and get it to what you like! The other good thing about Mediterranean recipes, is that they are some of the healthiest recipes you will find and this one is no exeption! I do have to give a disclaimer though, Greek food, to me at least, is an acquired taste. It will take a few tries with it for it to grow on you. This is how it worked for me at least.
