Easy Greek Salad Recipe

This Greek salad is yummmmmy. I start drooling just looking at the picture. Crispy and fresh vegetables along with a slightly sweet dressing make this Greek salad a perfect and easy lunch or dinner.

5 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 English cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup sliced Kalamata olives
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Lemon Vinaigrette
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Zest of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar

To make vinaigrette, whisk together olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lemon zest and juice and sugar in a small bowl; set aside.

To assemble salad, place romaine lettuce in a large bowl; top with red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, goat cheese and pepper, to taste. Pour dressing on top of salad and gently toss to combine.
Serve immediately.
