Servings: 4 people
for the salad -
- 1 romaine lettuce heart
- 1/2 cup bell peppers I used the mini sweet bell peppers, but you can use what you have.
- 2 Persian cucumbers
- 1 oz pitted olives I used Nicoise, but black olives work well too.
- 1/5 cup cheese of your choice shredded or crumbled
for the dressing
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 TBSP red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt + pepper to taste
Wash and dry the fresh produce. Roughly chop the lettuce.
Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice or dice.
Halve the cucumbers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.
Roughly chop the olives.
Combine all the produce into a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, oregano, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Just before serving, add the dressing to the bowl of prepared salad ingredients; toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
