A hearty salad with the Greek flavors of feta, oregano, kalamata olives and plum tomatoes.
1 head romaine lettuce, torn by hands
1 small cucumber, peeled, diced
1 green pepper, sliced into thin rings
1 red onion, sliced into thin rings
3 plum tomatoes, seeded, chopped
1/2 cup kalamata olives
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 tablespoon red wine
1 tablespoon lemon juice
5 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
* Soak onion rings in cold water for 5 minutes to lessen sharpness of flavor. After soaking, squeeze out excess water and dry with paper towels.
