- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 cloves garlic, smashed with side of your knife then peeled
- 2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 1 large bunch romaine lettuce
- 4 oz grape tomatoes, halved
- 1 large cucumber
- 1/2 medium red onion
- 1/2 cup kalamata olives, halved
- 1/2 cup feta cheese, diced or crumbled
- 4 pepperoncini peppers
For the Dressing:
Combine all the ingredients in a small, air-tight jar and shake well to mix. Set aside.
For the Salad:
Roughly chop the romaine lettuce and toss it into a large bowl. (I like to chill my bowl)
Slice the grape tomatoes in half and add it to the bowl with the lettuce, then half the cucumber and slice thinly, add to the bowl.
Slice the onion into thin rings, then quarter, separating the layers before adding to the rest of the salad.
Slice the olives in half, dice or crumble feta cheese, add to the salad.
Pour the desired amount of the dressing over the salad and gently toss all the ingredients together and serve immediately.
