Mom's Greek Salad

My mom makes the best Greek salad. It's all in the dressing, and I'm about to share it with you.

  • 1/2 c. olive oil
  • 1/4 c. red wine vinegar
  • Crushed garlic (more or less, depending on preference; I use 4-6 cloves)
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Generous amount of dried oregano (2-3 tbsp.)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (add salt at the very end; give a shake or two, then dip a fork in and taste it; repeat as necessary)

  • Whisk everything together until it's all blended.    

 For salad:
  • Romaine, chopped
  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Cucumber, chopped/diced/however you like it in a salad
  • Green bell pepper, chopped
  • Onions, finely sliced
  • Kalamata olives 
  • Toss it all together with the dressing
  • Voila! 
  • Feel free to leave out anything you don't care fore (I'm not big into Kalamata olives, or onions for that matter) 

yum YUM YUM!
