Greek-ish Salad

I love this salad!  I’m pretty sure traditional Greek Salad doesn’t come with lettuce and that is why I am calling this “Greek-ish Salad”. As I’m sitting here writing this, I keep hearing Bart Simpson’s voice, “you don’t make friends with salad…”

Serves 4

Dressing:

3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive oil

2 tbsp White wine vinegar or the Juice of half a lemon

1 Clove of garlic, crushed

2 Sprigs of fresh oregano, leaves only, finely diced

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

Salad:

142 g box of Spring mix lettuce

1 large tomato, sliced in think wedges

½ Cucumber, cut in half moons

2 Slices of red onion, broken into rings

¼ Cup pitted kalamata olives

¼ Fat reduced feta cheese, broken into crumbles

1 Sprig of oregano, leaves only

–  Prepare the dressing first; whisk together all ingredients and set aside.

–  For the salad, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.  Pour the dressing on and mix well immediately before serving.

–  Taste and adjust seasoning.

Notes:

  1. You won’t miss the extra fat in this cheese.
  2. I also think traditional Greek salads have green peppers in them so feel free, I just wasn’t feeling green peppers tonight!
