Ingredients

  • 1 medium head romaine lettuce torn into bite-size pieces, washed, and dried
  • 2 medium tomatoes cored, seeded, and large dice
  • 1 medium English cucumber large dice
  • 1 cup kalamata olives pitted and halved
  • 1/2 medium red onion thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice from 1 medium lemon, plus more as needed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt plus more as needed
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese about 2 1/2 ounces
  • add choice of meat I like grilled chicken strips or braised lamb 
  • add fresh or jars of beets I use pickled beets and save the juice for another day to taste.

Instructions

  • Place the lettuce in a large bowl and add the tomatoes, cucumber, olives, and onion; set aside.
  • Place the oil, measured lemon juice, oregano, measured salt, and pepper to taste in a small, nonreactive bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Pour over the salad and toss to combine. Taste and season with additional lemon juice, salt, or pepper as needed.
  • Sprinkle with the feta. Top with your choice of meat or beets to taste. 

Notes

  • My choice of add-ons is grilled chicken strips and pickled beets from a jar. I keep the juice for future use to flavor other dishes and reduce the water needed.
