Think G(r)eek Salad

One of my most favorite gamer-type-gear websites is So it's not surprising that I happened to come up with this particular name for this recipe as I sat down for lunch. Especially because it's a greek style salad. It's topped with delicious feta, olives and an olive oil based dressing. I also threw in some radishes and cucumbers for good measure. Salad is one of those great things that's easy to eat at the computer since you only need a fork, it doesn't get your hands messy, it's actually something healthy for you, and you can mix up different ingredients all you want to have a different salad every time!

I know you're thinking that salad isn't exactly gamer food. And I say BAH! It is for THIS gamer! I'll still be gaming when I'm 90 and beating my great-grandchildren because I decide to have some salad every once in a while in between pizza and cheetos. ~_^
