Esther's Greek Salad

My friend Esther has shared a number of recipes
with me over the years.

This Greek Salad is one of my favourites.
It's simple and....Y.U.M.M.Y.
Thanks for sharing Esther!

~ Esther's Greek Salad ~
(Slightly altered)

One Large Head Romaine ~ Cleaned and torn
One Long English Cucumber ~ Chopped coarsely
Two Large Tomatoes ~ Chopped coarsely
One Small Red Onion ~ Chopped
Four Green Onions ~ Chopped
One Small Tin Olives ~ Drained
Half Pound Feta ~ Crumbled

Put all salad ingredients into large bowl.

~ Dressing Ingredients ~

1/2 Cup Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
1 tsp Dried Marjoram
(Substitute Oregano if preferred)
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/8 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Mix up the dressing, toss with greens and serve.
(I reserve the Feta and top individual portions with it).


*Update 2016*
This is my new favourite dressing...altered from this recipe.

3/4 cup Olive Oil
1 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1 clove Garlic, minced
2 tsp dried Oregano 
2 tsp dried Basil
1 tsp freshly ground Black Pepper
1 tsp freshly ground Himalayan Pink Salt
1 and 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1 and 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 and 1/2 tsp liquid Honey

**To make this SCD Compliant,
just substitute Freshly Grated Parmesan for the Feta.

MMmmmmmm!!!! We LOVE Greek salad! I keep a version of that same dressing in the fridge. So yummy! :)

Dear Camille,
Look at that salad...Y.U.M.M.Y.!!!
I like Greek salad too, just minus the tomato b/c I am allergic to it. I always load up on the Feta, that's the best part! Will definitely try the dressing, love it when it's home-made.
In His Grace,
