Greek Salad


I promised I’d post the recipe!  Here it is: Greek Salad!  Quick, easy & healthy!  What more could you ask for?

Ingredients:
1 red onion, but into bit sized pieces (can use white or sweet onions)
3 bell peppers (any color variety)
1 can black olives or half a jar of calamata olives
1 japanese cucumber, peeled & sliced
1/4 cup fresh, finely chopped herbs (cilantro, parsley, basil, mint, thyme, oregano, etc)
Dressing Ingredients:
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp oregano, dried or fresh
Juice from half of one lemon
1 large or 2 small garlic cloves minced
Salt & pepper to taste
Mix all vegetables together in a large bowl.  Combine the red wine vinegar, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl on the side.  Whisk together, pour over vegetables, and toss together.  Serve with some crusty bread or falafel on pita bread. Serves around 6.  Enjoy!

    I LOVE Greek salad – it’s one of my favourite. I’ve been meaning to try a tofu feta recipe I’ve seen floating around blog land somewhere…..Bryanna’s blog.
    That’s where I saw it.

    Here’s the link for you. I’m gonna give this a go later today – If the HFS has Tofu that is.

  3. yummy. I love a greek salad too. I used to get this giant plate of it for lunch back in the day. I would finish it, then wonder how I did it.

  4. The Health Food Shop didn’t have Tofu (they frequently run out – it’s insane).
    I’ll drop you a message when I have made some.
