Big Fat Greek Salad

If you’re wondering if I borrowed this recipe, then you would be correct. Like a good borrower though, I will site my source of… Walmart. No joke. I was standing in the checkout line in one of the “fancy” Walmart’s complete with TVs in the checkout lanes, and there was a quick commercial for a Greek salad. It looked amazing, so I went home, found the recipe, made some minor tweaks and voila, a Walmart masterpiece was born.

Greek SaladIngredients

  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano, crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large red tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1 cucumber, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup of diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (do not use over 1/2 cup!)
  • 20 kalamata olives, pitted and sliced in half
  • 2 bags of ready-to-eat salad, romaine lettuce
  • 4 oz crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  1. In a large salad bowl, mix the oil, lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, and pepper with a fork. 
  2. Add the tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, parsley, and olives. Toss to mix well. If you have time, let marinate for 15 minutes.
  3. Add greens and feta and toss again.
  4. Plate and eat!

    MMMM….. My Mum says that sounds yummy. She lived for ten years in Greece, and she says this is a fair copy of a Greek salad, although where she lived vinegar was never used as a dressing, only freshly crumbled mountain herbs and extra virgin olive oil. 🙂
