Secret Garden Herbs Greek Salad



Greetings Friends! As a salad lover, I love to try unusual combinations or mix up new varieties on a classic. There are two things that ruin a good salad for me.  First, I dislike iceberg lettuce, period!  Also, overdressing makes a perfectly good salad soggy and adds unwanted calories. My recent favorite has been my own version of the traditional Greek salad.  This recipe is a large portion, as in my dinner, for one or could be a side salad for two.

 Ingredients:  

Secret Garden Herbs Dressing:

Mix the following ingredients in a mason jar, pour into a cruet and set aside.

1/2 teaspoon dried Thyme                
1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano             
1/4 teaspoon cracked pepper    
1 Tablespoon roasted garlic vinegar
2 Tablespoons olive oil   

Combine the following:

2-3 cups chopped Ruby red lettuce 
1/4 cup Feta cheese  
10-12 grape tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped celery
8-10 Kalamata pitted black olives

*Recipe including 1/2 of dressing prepared is 366 calories


Very sparingly add dressing, a drizzle at a time and toss salad.  The key to crisp yumminess is to not over dress!  It will be soggy if you use all that is mixed!
