Greek salad


I was assigned to bring a salad to a dinner party with friends and brought this yummy Greek version. It would also be great with pepperoncini peppers and sliced green pepper, but I didn't have those on hand.
Greek Salad
-romaine lettuce, spring mix or spinach... just fill up a large serving bowl with your favorite
-1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
-2 tomatoes, chopped
-1 red onion, cut into large chunks
-handful of kalamata olives
-1 cup walnuts, toasted
-1 small container of feta cheese, crumbled
Dressing
-1 clove garlic
-1 Tbsp lemon juice
-1/2 c olive oil
-1/4 c red wine vinegar
-1 tsp sugar
-1 tsp dried oregano
-1/2 tsp pepper
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp dijon mustard
 
Place all salad ingredients in large bowl. Combine dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Toss dressing with salad (starting off with a little and adding more until the salad is adequately coated).

Oh, all your food sounds so good. Your blog will be something nice for you to have to remember your younger days. I wish computers had been around when I was a young married!
