Heading to the Mid Cities Greek Festival this morning with our Greek friends, I thought it only appropriate to give you a yummy Greek recipe. If you loved "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" as much as I did, then you can whip up this easy breezy salad for all of your cousins named Nick, Nico, Nicky, Diane, Nick...

Classic Greek Salad
from Colorado Collage Cookbook

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 cups romaine
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) crumbled feta
  • 2 small zucchini sliced (you could also use and English cucumber here)
  • 16 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 16 kalmata olives (definitely did not include this at our house)

Combine oil, lemon juice, and oregano in bowl. Season with salt and pepper. If you make it ahead just store in sealed container in your fridge. In large serving bowl combine all vegetables and dress salad right before serving. OPA!
