I’ve always loved a Greek Salad. Feta Cheese and Kalamata Olives? Yum! Fortunately, Greek Salads can be very healthy and low-calorie so long as you go easy with the cheese and vinaigrette.

This recipe is a slightly different twist on the normal Greek Salad. It has tuna and whole grain couscous in it, both of which help turn the salad into a main dish kind of salad.

    Greek Salads are a wonderful lunch dish. I don’t usually see the tuna on it around here. It’s the feta cheese that I crave when thinking of a Greek Salad and it better be loaded with it. :) Also, if the tuna is oil packed, it turns me off so I like the albacore (I know…mercury (BOO! and sustainability factor (another BOOO!) ) the best.
