Some of my favorite salad items to add to this Greek Salad are capers, black olives, and red onions. You can go away from traditional Greek salad and throw in some carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower.
What Type of Salad Greens Do I Use in This Greek Salad?
You can use essentially any kind of lettuce or greens with this Greek Salad with Pepperoni recipe. My favorite lettuce to use personally is romaine. It is crisp and has much more nutrients, such as much more folate, potassium, and calcium, than traditional iceberg lettuce. I even mix in spinach to add additional nutritional value to my salad.
Can I Add Other Types of Protein to My Greek Salad?
You can add any other types of proteins that you like. I like to substitute chopped steak, chopped chicken, and even chopped tofu to this salad to give it a bit of variety.
