Greek Salad

I made this to take to our friends' house last night. It came from a friend in Arkansas (thanks, Leann) and it is our fave!

1 head romaine lettuce (washed, dried, and torn in pieces)
cherry tomatoes, halved
thinly sliced rings of red onion
crumbled feta cheese
kalamata olives
cucumber slices

I dont' know that I measure the above ingredients. We like tomatoes, olives, and feta, so we use lots. Only a few onions though and I can't stand cucumbers, so I omit them.


3 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced or crushed
1 tsp. lemon pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Whisk together and pour over salad. Toss well and serve. It's best if you toss about 15 minutes prior to serving. Don't make and toss ahead of time. Your salad will seriously wilt if you do.
