Greek Salad Revisited

I feel like I haven't posted anything for a while... probably because I haven't.

Guess I've been busy. I certainly have a lot of new things going on. Also, no fridge for a few days there. Anyway, figured I'd throw another of my favorite salads on here.  I thought I already posted this, but it must just be one of the ones that I did on facebook or something before I moved over to this blog.

I don't like to actually call it a greek salad, because I do some things that are a bit outside the stereotypical greek salad... but it's pretty close.  I also totally left out the peperoncini peppers this time and added cayenne... mostly because i forgot to buy peperoncinis.

Anyway, here we go:

1 cucumber
1/2 cup olives (I usually use kalamata)
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1 red bell pepper
more dill than you would expect... a BIG handful
1 medium red onion
1 medium cucumber
1 bunch of romaine
1 large tomato
3 limes
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper


If you don't know how to take that stuff and turn it into a salad, well...
Chop it up dummy.

Ok, a few tips:  peel strips of the skin off of the cucumber, not all of the skin, chop into discs.
cut tomato into 1/2 inch slices
halve the onion, then slice into crescents
otherwise, just chop everything up and throw it in a bowl.

Then squeeze the lime juice over it; add the olive oil, cayenne, salt, and pepper; Toss and serve.

easily serves 2 as a full meal.  4 or more if served as a side.
