Greek Salad

Gabby at True Blessings asked for my Greek Salad recipe after she saw it in Allen's birthday post.  How can I deny her when it is such a healthy and delicious plate of goodness.  I like to make these up right on the plate because they look so pretty that way.  It really is easy.

Start with a layer of shredded Romaine lettuce.  Top with a Roma tomato that has been quartered, a few slices of green pepper, cucumber rounds, sliced red onions, 4 Kalamata olives, pepperocini and crumbled feta cheese.

For dressing:  Shake in jar or in a blender 3 T. olive oil, 1 1/2 T. lemon juice, 1 clove garlic (minced) 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.  This dressing keeps well in the fridge for some time so make a larger batch if you think you will want this frequently.

Drizzle over salad and enjoy!

Gabby, in answer to your other question, I bought my picture frames at Joann's Etc.  You can see a close up of them by clicking this link.  I replaced them over the course of several years just waiting for a good coupon or for them to be 50% off.  I actually used the style throughout my whole house so if I wanted to move it to another location it would match no matter where I put them.  I didn't care for the mats that came with them so most of them I replaced for a dollar or two by going to the precut mat section near the framing section in our store.

I hope that helps you out.  Thanks for stopping by, friend.

Hugs,

Kat

  5. Looks and sounds really good (except I'd probably have to leave the olives off of mine).
