This is a very beautiful salad. The colorful veggies offset by the white feta makes this one gorgeous salad that is so delicious! This delightful salad dressing also tastes wonderful in an Italian salad!
6 Tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon granulated sugar, for a less tart dressing, optional
1/2 teaspoon salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 head Romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
1 package of torn Romaine lettuce
2 cups baby spinach, I remove the stems; you can leave them on if you prefer
3 large Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 English cucumber, peeled and diced
2 regular cucumbers, peeled and diced
1 medium red onion, sliced into thin rings
1 small red bell pepper, sliced into thin rings or matchsticks
3/4 cup seeded kalamata or black olives, halved
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
Note: Bottled lemon juice just does not work with this recipe. Please use fresh-squeezed lemon juice.
Note: Substitute other ingredients…remember this is not the Ten Commandments, just the 10 Suggestions. If your family loves deli meat, go ahead and slice some salami, summer sausage, ham, pastrami or some other family deli favorite and add to your salad.
