Greek Salad

From Cook's Illustrated

They also have a traditional greek salad with lettuce, but this all-cucumber version's my favorite. If making up more than will be consumed in one sitting, don't add all of the tomatoes and feta. Add them at serving time so the tomatoes aren't refrigerated and the feta is freshly crumbled.

Vinaigrette
1 ½ Tbs red wine vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp minced fresh oregano leaves
½ tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
6 tbs olive oil

Salad
½ medium red onion, sliced thin
2 medium cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into 1/8 inch thick slices
6 large tomatoes, cored, and cut into 12 wedges
¼ c torn fresh parsley leaves
¼ c torn fresh mint leaves (optional)
6 oz jarred roasted red bell pepper, cut into ½ by 2"; strips
20 large kalamata olives, pitted and quartered lengthwise
5 oz feta cheese, crumbled

Whisk vinaigrette ingredients in large bowl until combined.

Add onion and cucumber and toss; let stand to blend flavors, about 20 minutes.

Add tomatoes, parsley, mint, and peppers to bowl, toss to coat.

Transfer salad to wide, shallow serving bowl or platter; sprinkle olives and feta over salad. Serve immediately.

My old site is still available here. I'll move recipes over as time permits but my focus is adding recipes as I make them, with pictures whenever possible. This is not another online recipe warehouse. These are all personal favorites, made time and time again.
