Italian-Greek Salad

on March 22, 2010

Now that spring is here and the weather is doing it’s hardest to warm up a light refreshing side salad is always a good addition to any meal. This recipe I came up with combining Italian and Greek flavors. It’s an easy, quick salad that can be made last-minute. It goes great with beef, chicken, fish, burgers and so on. I have made many variations on this salad over the years. This recipe calls for feta cheese which makes it Greek but you can substitute the feta for mozzarella cheese as well. And for a little more fiber add some drained and rinsed garbanzo beans! It’s always a hit no matter what.

INGREDIENTS:

2 large plum tomatoes, cut into chunks.(You can usually get 10-12 chunks per tomato)

¼ cup chopped or sliced red onion (Add more if you like more red onion)

1 cup peeled and diced cucumber

1 large clove garlic, chopped fine

1-2 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried parsley

¼-½ cup feta cheese crumbles (I also use the low-fat Feta, you can’t tell the difference)

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

3 TBS white wine vinegar

salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:

1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, tossing well. Chill for 15 minutes or so. Serve!

** You can adjust the vinegar and olive oil if you feel it needs a little more of either.

Serves 2-3
