Greek Salad and Homemade Greek Dressing
Ingredients
  • Ingredients
  • 1 head fresh romaine lettuce, cut and rinsed
  • 1 c. red onion, diced
  • 1 c. green bell pepper
  • 1 whole cucumber, sliced
  • 1 whole tomato, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 4 oz. crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp. capers
  • 1.4 c. black olives, sliced
  • ½ lemon. squeezed
  • Dressing
  • 1¼ c. olive oil
  • ¼ c. red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. honey dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp. sea salt
  • 1 tbsp. pepper
  • 1 tbsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp. dried basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
Instructions
  1. This is very easy: Cut and rinse thoroughly the romaine lettuce. Make sure that you do your best to drain the excess water. I have a salad spinner and it worked wonderfully. Add your lettuce to a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl ( red onion, green bell pepper, cucumber slices, tomato, celery, feta cheese, capers, and black olives). With tongs, toss all the ingredients.
  2. DON'T USE THAT LEMON YET
  3. In a food processor, blend all the ingredients for the dressing. Taste to make sure that it is seasoned to your liking. Squeeze the half lemon on the salad and drizzle the salad with some of the Greek dressing and toss. Serve with warm french bread.
