A traditional Greek salad is one that is rustic. It is made with chopped cucumbers, chopped tomatoes, green peppers and feta cheese, good olives and a wonderful oregano vinaigrette.
I made a more formal version and served it on mixed greens.
Tomatoes are out of season, so I used cherry tomatoes, which worked out just great.
Also, for extra goodness, I added dolmas, which are grape leaves, rolled and stuffed with cooked rice.
This was a good detox dinner after all the holiday goodies I have been eating.
Going Greek Salad:
ripe tomatoes, quartered
green peppers, sliced thin
red onion slices
feta cheese, crumbled
Vinaigrette: (I never measure, make enough for the amount of salad you are serving)
red wine vinegar
fresh lemon juice
tsp of minced garlic
Tbsp dried oregano
salt & pepper
Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl.
Place all of your salad components in a bowl and mix with vinaigrette.
Place on top of mixed greens and serve!
