Greek Salad

The husband loves Greek food.  At a party this past Summer my friend brought a Greek salad that he went gaga over.  I think he wanted to kiss her.  I finally got a chance to give it her recipe a try the other night when my sister-in-law and her family spent the night with us on the way to the Bahamas.  It was a snowy day so I made it with Greek roast chicken (I skipped the potatoes) which turned out delicious.  It gave me a chance to use my new 1 cent roaster pan with rack from the Jewelz.  Great make ahead meal that is light yet satisfying.

Greek Salad
serves 4

2 T. olive oil
2 T. red wine vinegar
1 t. minced garlic
1/2 t. dried oregano
1/4 t. kosher salt
1/8 t. black pepper
1 head romaine lettuce, torn
1 pint cherry tomato(es), halved
1/2 medium red onion(s), sliced
1 C. peeled cucumber, sliced
6 oz olive(s), kalamata, pitted
1 C. reduced-fat feta cheese

In a jar combine olive oil, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper.  Shake to combine.  In large bowl combine all salad ingredients and toss with dressing.

Truth be told I pick out the olives .  I also dress my salads pretty light, so double the dressing it doesn’t cover to suit your taste.

    I love you you said the Jewelz!

    I ended up giving my stickers to a co-worker, it would take me forever to get one sticken pot since I don't do my regular grocery shop there.

    Is it a a decent roaster?

    Da Jewelz!

    I got my stickers from a friend actually. The roaster is great, complete with wire rack. It is the perfect size, not too large, yet I was able to roast two chickens at once in it. Thought it would be cheap-o, but not at all.
