This is the way my Papa (Grampa) from Greece would make a salad and would occasionally toss in a few pitted Kalamata olives, too ;-)

Ingredients:

Directions:

Toss first six ingredients in a large bowl. Lightly coat with olive oil and toss again. Splash with vinegar to your personal taste and toss again.

Can serve immediately or, to allow flavors to blend, cover and refrigerate for two hours or even a day.

Here's my twist on the original Brown Derby Cobb Salad. Besides the dressing ingredient mixture, the amount of the other ingredients are up to your mood of the day and the amount of people you are serving. Be sure to place the dressing (3/4 cup) in a cruet, so everyone can dress their salads to suit their own tastes. Any leftover dressing will store well in the refrigerator for about a week.

Ingredients:

  • 9 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • hearts of romaine, chopped
  • cucumber, seeded and finely diced
  • Roma tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
  • bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • red onion, finely diced
  • Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • peperoncini, stems removed and sliced
  • feta cheese, crumbled

Directions:

Ad

Whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice, season to taste with salt and pepper, place in a cruet and set aside.

Place the hearts of romaine on a serving platter.

Arrange the cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper, red onion, olives, peperoncini, and feta in strips on top of the romaine and serve.

I made this dish for a get together with friends because they needed a vegetarian protein to go along with dinner. This dish was a hit with everyone! No leftovers.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans green beans
  • 1 can red kidney beans
  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup Greek olives
  • Salad Dressing
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Steps:

  1. Put dressing ingredients in glass jar and shake to distribute.
  2. Drain cans of beans and rinse under cold water, let dry. I put them into the refrigerator to cool.
  3. Ad
  4. Put one layer of beans and olives in casserole, drizzle with salad dressing and sprinkle with 1/4 of the feta cheese. Layer the remaining beans, olives and drizzle once more with dressing and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I used about half of the yield of Greek salad dressing in this dish and refrigerated the remainder. Personal preference.

This is a great summer salad for picnics and potlucks. The cucumbers stay crisp longer than lettuce.

Ingredients

  • 2 English Cucumbers, cubed in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 Bell Peppers, any color, cubed in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 or 3 medium tomatoes, seeded and cubed in 1/2/ inch pieces OR cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 can black olives
  • 1 onion, chopped and rinsed
  • 8 oz feta, chopped or crumbled
  • Bottled Italian Dressing, any flavor (I like Newman's Balsalmic Vinagrette)

Directions

Combine veggies in a large bowl or colander. Cover and place in fridge for a few hours or overnight. Pour off excess moisture or use a salad spinner. Add feta and dressing to taste and toss.
