Healthy Greek Salad

pastryparrot1's picture
Greek salad is one of my favorite salads. I love making this one without lettuce and I do not add bell peppers to it because my husband hates them! So, if you want to add lettuce and bell peppers go right ahead.
Ingredients
  Cucumbers 2 Large
  Tomatoes 4 Medium
  Red onion 1 Medium
  Kalamata olive 16
  Greek feta cheese 4 Ounce
  Extra virgin olive oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Red wine vinegar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Oregano leaves 1 Tablespoon, dried
  Granulated sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
Directions

Wash and peel the cucumbers, leaving thin strips of peel on them. Slice them into 1/2 inch pieces.
Thinly slice the red onion.
Slice the tomatoes.
Seed and slice the Kalamata olives.
Crumble the Feta cheese.
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them carefully so as not to mash the tomatoes.
In a bowl, mix together the oil. vinegar, oregano and sugar.
Season with salt and pepper and whisk until emulsified.
Drizzle the dressing onto the salad and mix well (again be careful not to mash the tomatoes) and serve.
