Greek Salad

This is a terrific lunch! It's light, filling, and very fresh tasting--perfect for the warmer weather we're moving into.

Recipe from South Beach Diet

  • 8 leaves romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and sliced (I don't usually peel mine)
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 c. sliced red onion
  • 1/2 c. crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. lemon juice
  • 1 t. dried oregano
  • 1/2 t. salt
Combine lettuce, cucumber, tomato, onion, and cheese in a large bowl. Whisk together the oil, juice, oregano, and salt in a small bowl. Pour over lettuce mixture and toss until coated.

This is also good with olives and/or chick peas added!

Serves 1 generously
