Easy Greek Salad

Well, so much for my promise of posting on a more regular basis…

To all of my teacher readers out there: you know what happens when spring break starts inching closer.  The madness sets in.  The students start going bonkers, and it takes every ounce of your self-control to not lose your mind slash physically harm them.  Plus we had planned a fantastic babymoon.

Basically I spent weeks talking myself off the ledge, waiting to go here: Arizona It. was. paradise.  Then we went here:

Grand Canyon Coolest place ever.

Then we got home and I was in denial for a week.  After a week of spa treatments, amazing food and poolside relaxation, I almost refused to get on the plane.

Alas, back to reality and the myriad of projects we have to complete.  In 6 weeks there will be a bouncing bundle of joy…so exciting, but also a little scary!

I actually have a bunch of yummy food to share with you all.  Let’s start with this quick and easy salad.  You all know how much I love the Strip District.  Stamoolis Brothers is one of the stops I frequent.  They have the best fresh feta ever…and surprisingly it’s French.  They also have wonderful fresh pitas.
Greek salad

you will need:
2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
¾ cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 medium cucumber,
¼ red onion, thinly sliced
handful kalamata olives, chopped
handful marinated artichokes, roughly chopped
¼ cup (or more) crumbled feta cheese (the better quality, the better!)
handful crumbled pita chips
fresh pita bread
Greek dressing – store bought or homemade

Add romaine to a large bowl.  Toss with tomatoes, cucumber, onion, olives and artichokes.  Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat.  Dish into serving bowls, then top with feta and pita chips.  I think gyro-style lamb would be amazing on top of this salad – I’ll try it next time.  Oh, the leftovers make an amazing lunch for the next day!

serves: 2
time: 10 minutes
