Greek SaladPosted: January 2, 2011
This is a beautiful and yummy salad. The recipe is basically a guide. I don’t follow this recipe to a tee, ever. I just start chopping and adding veggies. The last time I made this, I didn’t have Kalamata olives, so I just added regular ol’ black olives. I also added green bell pepper (diced). I like to add some croutons to the salad for a little crunch. The lemon-garlic dressing is a favorite of mine.
romaine lettuce, cut into 1″ pieces
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and dicediced
1 medium tomato, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup kalamata olives, chopped
1/8 cup pepperocini peppers, stem removed, seeded, and chopped
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 – 2 cloves garlic, minced
pinch of oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Combine lettuce, cucumber, tomato, onions, olives, pepperocinis, and feta cheese in large serving bowl.
Whisk together oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Pour over the vegetable mixture; toss until coated. Serve immediately.
