REC: Greek Salad ala the Acropolis
from Gail's, via Gretchen
some grilled chicken strips to it for a main meal. It makes a lot, but keeps well
in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Greek Salad ALA the Acropolis
1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 c. red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp. dried basil
3/4 tsp. pepper
3 - 4 T. sugar
3 potatoes, cooked, cooled, peeled, cubed
1 box grape tomatoes
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 c. yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
3/4 c. Feta cheese,
1/2 c. sweet onion (like Vidalia), chopped
generous 1/2 c. Greek olives
1 cucumber, peeled, cut in half, deseeded
then sliced
Romaine lettuce
Mix together oil, vinegar, garlic powder,basil, oregano, pepper and sugar. Add
remaining ingredients except Romaine; toss until all ingredients are well coated.
Cover and chill overnight or even a couple days. Just before serving, cut Romaine into
small sections, place a good amount in each bowl. Top with other ingredients, including
some of the dressing.
Store leftover marinated vegetable mixtures in tightly covered container in
refrigerator. Will keep several days. Add some roasted chicken for a complete meal.
