As my quest for quick, easy, and yet delicious dinners continues, I remembered Greek Dinner Salad! Of course. How had I forgotten about something so yummy and so easy. As I've said before I adore mediterranean foods, the flavors. I believe, I've read somewhere, that the true Greek salad does not use lettuce. Lettuce is added for Americans, who feel a salad must have lettuce. I didn't have any lettuce, so I used a little (very little) arugula. My Greek salad, does not look anywhere near as good and creative as Peter's, but it was still quite tasty.
I didn't measure anything, because, hey, every once in a while I like to pretend I'm a chef. It's just a mix of green peppers, tomatoes, red onions, Greek olives (I like to use as many as I feel my waistline can handle), cucumbers, feta, and the above mentioned, optional lettuce. Toss with a little olive oil, the juice of 1/2 a lemon, dried oregano, salt and pepper and you have dinner. And what a fine dinner it was. Even though there was no meat, the olives and feta give you a very satisfied full feeling.
