Greek Salad

Here's another favorite from TPW!! I actually made this because I had all the ingredients from when I made this. Not to mention most of the needed ingredients are staples in my fridge! This fresh, clean, easy to throw together salad is a MUST try, and will surly become a favorite as Spring turns into Summer:)

Yummy Greek Salad
1 head Romaine Lettuce, Chopped
4 whole Ripe Tomatoes, Cut Into Six Wedges Each, Then Each Wedge Cut In Half
1 whole (large) Cucumber, Peeled, Cut Into Fourths Lengthwise, And Diced Into Large Chunks
½ whole Red Onion, Sliced Very Thin
30 whole Pitted Kalamata Olives, Cut In Half Lengthwise
6 ounces, weight Crumbled Feta Cheese
Fresh Parsley, Roughly Chopped
¼ cups Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 teaspoon Sugar (more To Taste)
1 clove Garlic, Minced
6 whole Kalamata Olives (extra), Chopped Fine
¼ teaspoons Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 whole Lemon, For Squeezing

Preparation Instructions
Add chopped lettuce, tomato wedges, cucumber chunks, onion slices, halved Kalamata olives, half the feta, and parsley to a large bowl.
Combine olive oil, vinegar, sugar, garlic, salt, pepper, and chopped olives in a bowl. Whisk together until combined. Taste and adjust seasonings (I almost always add a little sugar.)

Pour dressing over salad ingredients, then add salt and pepper. Toss with tongs or clean hands. Just before serving, top with additional feta and squeeze a little lemon juice over the top.

* If you need more protein, add grilled chicken!
** If you're looking for more [healthy] carbs, pile this yumminess onto a sprouted wrap, tortilla, or flatbread! Nom, Nom, Nom!

A Quick Note: My apologies for being semi missing in action since Tuesday's recap of my March For Babies experience. I have A LOT of awesome/recent adventures and look forward to re-living these amazing experiences by sharing them with you all shortly!
