Greek Salad with Creamy Dressing

Salad season is officially here.  It's time to get into shorts, t-shirts and those dreaded swim suits so eating lighter and healthier is almost a necessity.  I made this simple Greek Salad to go with some grilled chicken and it was a perfect light meal.   The creamy and tangy Greek Dressing coated each piece of salad deliciously.  I may be trying to eat healthier because I'm vain, but it doesn't feel like a sacrifice with this hearty salad. 

2 heads of romaine lettuce
1 cup of diced tomatoes or cherry tomatoes quartered
1/2 red onion
1/2 cup Greek olives (black, green and/or kalamata)
1 cucumber sliced
1/2 cup of feta cheese crumbled


 Creamy Greek Style Dressing
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup  Fresh lemon juice
1-2 cloves of grated garlic
1 Tbs of honey
2 Tbs of mayonnaise
1-2 tsp of red wine vinegar
salt and black pepper to taste

 Directions:  Prepare all salad ingredients.  Mix salad dressing. Serve together. Enjoy.
