Greek Style Caesar Salad
My kids love this salad! I love making it because it’s just a little different than the salad you find at restaurants. The yogurt makes the dressing a little lighter and the grilled halloumi is a great touch. I highly recommend serving this to guests too, they’ll love the fun twist on a classic salad!
