Frying julienned leeks is a great way to add extra crunch and color to this Greek salad of olives, feta cheese, chickpeas, cucumber, Romaine, and grape leaves.

This is a great salad. I followed the recipe exactly and my husband and I loved it. Plan to do it for company next.

Made this tonite without the leek and feta. Added radish in place of chickpeas. I thought was good, my husband thought the dressing was bland.

Tried the salad for dinner tonight. Everyone really liked it. Did not use fried leeks, just cut up green onions instead. Will make again. A nice light easy salad to make.
