Feta Cheese and Black Olive Salad

Once in a while I get on a kick where I crave this salad and have it for lunch, days in a row...  it's a summery kind of salad, but with fresh veggies available year round, I thought I would post it again as a reminder to myself to make this again soon.

As with most of my recipes - play with it. I can't call it a Greek Salad just because it has feta and black olives in it. I can't call it an Italian Salad just because I like to use an Italian Vinaigrette in it. So... it's just a green salad with feta and black olives!

This is to make the whole bag of lettuce - which will serve between 2 to 6 people depending on if it's the main dish and only thing for dinner or if it's a side salad with other foods.

Feta Cheese and Black Olive Salad

1 bag pre-washed romaine and green leafy lettuce mixture
2 small cans sliced black olives, or if they are in the budget, use kalamata but they do cost more
1 small red onion, sliced into rings
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced or diced
1 tomato, sliced into wedges or if you prefer, cut each wedge into 4 chunks
8 oz. block Feta Cheese, crumbled
1 package Italian (Good Seasons) dry dressing, made according to package with olive oil

Mix the salad ingredients, add about 1 cup of the dressing and toss. Enjoy. Print Friendly and PDF
