Tried and True: Greek-ishly Good Salad

Tried and true foods are those staples you just keep going back to. They are quick, easy, and for some reason you tend to have all the ingredients in the fridge or cabinets without a special trip to the store.

For my first tried and true post, I picked my favorite salad to throw together when I want something satisfying and tasty but light and healthy. Great by itself or with a side of soup to round out the meal, Greek salad just tastes too good to be salad.

Greek-ishly Good Salad
romaine lettuce
red onion
tomato (I like cherry tomatos cut in half)
red or orange peppers
greek feta
olive oil
balsamic vinegar (if use white balsamic vinegar)

Wash all the vegetables. Thinly slice the peppers and onion. Throw the sliced tomatos, peppers, and onion on top of the lettuce. Crumble the feta cheese on top. Dress the salad with a pinch of salt, fresh ground pepper, a drizzling of olive oil, and a splash of vinegar.

A solid salad. Uncomplicated and delicious every time.
