Chopped Greek Salad with Fresh Herbs

An authentic Greek salad with fresh chopped vegetables, herbs, feta cheese, lemon juice, and olive oil. Add chopped grilled chicken to make it a meal, and be sure to serve it with warm bread to mop up all the lemon and herb-infused olive oil at the bottom of the bowl.
