Dressing Ingredients

6 Tbsp. olive oil

Juice from 2 lemons

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1 tsp oregano

 ½ tsp salt (more if desired)

½ tsp pepper

(confession: I add a small spoonful of honey just to keep everything balanced.)

Salad Ingredients

2 large heads of romaine lettuce, chopped

2 sticks celery, sliced

½ small onion, sliced

¼ cup black or Kalamata olives

1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half (or good tomatoes in season)

¼ cup marinated red pepper or pickled jalapeno pepper

½ cup crumbled feta cheese

Anchovies (if desired)

Other possible ingredients include: chick peas, anchovies, cucumbers, artichoke hearts, carrots – check the fridge you may find more ideas. Visit the grocery salad bar for small portions of toppings.

Directions

Add dressing ingredients to a jar with a tight lid and shake to combine.

Layer a large salad bowl with chopped romaine lettuce.

Add toppings.

The salad may sit I the refrigerator for several hours before dressing, tossing and serving.

It’s best very cold!
