This crunchy, refreshing salad has the traditional ingredients of a Greek salad but the creamy yogurt dressing makes it deliciously different. An abundance of fresh herbs and grated lemon zest give it a flavorful punch. This side salad pairs well with entrées like grilled chicken, beef, and pork. Turn this recipe into 6 salads to take-on-the-go by assembling the ingredients into mason jars. To keep all the vegetables crisp, spoon about 2½ tablespoons of the dressing into the bottom of each jar and layer with 1½ cups of the salad ingredients. Keep each salad chilled and when ready to eat - just shake.
