It’s Greek To Me…

I generally don’t publish back-to-back posts for the simple reason that “a little lunch” was created to be a tidbit, rather than a full-course-meal.

However, some things are SOOOO good, it would be a disservice not to share.

Greek Salad

1 cucumber, peeled & sliced (I do the decorative peel thing…)

Salt, to taste

2 tomatoes, seeded & chopped (I used cherry tomatoes, quartered)

1/2 an onion, finely chopped

1 head of lettuce, washed, drained & torn

Olives (I used Kalamata, but a combo of black & green also works well)

8 oz. crumbled Feta or goat cheese

Extra virgin olive oil

Freshly squeezed lemon juice

Greek seasoning (I used Konriko, but Cavender’s is also yummy)

Combine cucumber slices and salt; let sit 30 minutes, then drain.

In a large bowl, combine lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and olives; toss lightly.

In a small measuring cup, combine equal parts of olive oil and lemon juice; add Greek seasoning to taste.  Drizzle over salad and toss again.

Add cheese (I prefer it sprinkled over the top); serve immediately.

The mysteries of the universe may elude me (yet), but it helps to ponder them over a tasty salad.

Enjoying life — whatever the translation may be,
