Greek Salad

This one is from a friend from our BYU days. She and her sister-in-law were both in our married student ward, and they have a fantastic recipe blog, Edwards Edibles. Check it out for more good recipes, but this one caught my eye--and it's SO good.

The Ultimate Greek  Salad
6 Tbsp olive oil (or less)
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp dried oregano

1 head lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
3 large plum tomatoes, sliced thin
1 English cucumber, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 medium red onion, cut into thin rings
1 small green or red pepper, cut into thin rings
3/4 C kalamata olives
3/4 C crumbled Feta cheese

Whisk dressing ingredients together till blended; season to taste. Layer in order (or just combine) all salad ingredients in large bowl; pour dressing over and either toss or leave it for everyone to do individually.
