Greek Salad


One of my favorite things about summer are all of the fresh veggies! Lettuce salads are one of my favorite meals in the summer. Summer has now officially arrived and the fresh veggies are calling my name, I am making my version of a Greek salad for lunch. My garden lettuce is not quite ready so I'm using romaine lettuce from the farmers market.

Here is my ingredient list for one serving of salad but add or change the ingredients for your favorites:
  • Romaine or green leafy lettuce (or your favorite) - enough to fill a plate
  • Calamata olives, I use -5-6 olives
  • sweet banana peppers, sliced, I use 2-3
  • shallot or purple onion, sliced. about 1/4 of either one
  • grape tomatoes
  • yellow, green or red bell peppers, sliced
  • feta cheese, 1/4 cup
  • mozzarella cheese (I don't know why but I always need a little mozzarella cheese over the top)
  • Optional: add some sliced, grilled chicken. 
Enjoy your fresh veggies and healthy eating!

Love and peace,
