Ingredients

For the Greek Vinaigrette:

For the Big Fat Greek Salad:

  • 12 ounces chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 English cucumber halved and sliced
  • 1/2 red onion sliced
  • 15 ounces chickpeas, drained (1 can)
  • 15 ounces artichoke hearts, drained and halved (1 can)
  • 10 ounces Pepperazzi sweet peppers, drained and halved
  • 1 1/4 cups pitted kalamata olives
  • 3/4 cup jarred¬†sun dried tomatoes, sliced thin
  • 8 ounces feta cheese, cut into chunks or crumbled (optional)

Instructions

  • Place the ingredients for the Greek vinaigrette in a jar. Screw the lid on and shake well to blend. Taste, then salt and pepper as needed. Shake again. (I usually add about 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.)
  • Pile the chopped romaine lettuce in a large bowl. Neatly arrange the all the ingredients over the top of the lettuce.
  • When ready to serve, shake the dressing again and drizzle over the salad. Toss to coat.

Notes

NOTE: If you omit the feta, and use agave syrup in the vinaigrette instead of honey, this salad is vegan.
