Tips  

Feta is a soft, crumbly cheese with a sharp, salty flavor. Traditionally, this classic Greek cheese was made with sheep or goat's milk, although today it's often made with cow's milk.

Leftover cooked chicken is perfect for no-cook supper salads. If you don't have any on hand, pick up cooked chicken at your supermarket deli, or use canned cooked chicken.
