Prep:

Ingredients

1
romaine lettuce head
dash(es)
oregano, dried
1/2
english cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 c
grape-size tomatoes, rinsed
4
sundried tomatoes (in oil), drained and halved
1/4 c
kalamata olives, drained
4
whole pepperoncini peppers
3 tsp
sliced pepperoncini peppers, drained
2 tsp
capers, rinsed and drained
3 Tbsp
feta cheese, crumbled
1/2
small lemon
4 Tbsp
lighter flavor olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Rinse lettuce and pat dry with paper towels. Thinly slice lettuce (discarding the last couple of inches - the core). Temporarily place a paper towel in the bottom of a large mixing bowl to absorb any remaining water. Place lettuce in bowl.
2
Sprinkle with oregano; cover and place in refrigerator until serving time.
3
At serving time, add cucumber, both kinds of tomatoes, olives, peppers, capers and feta cheese to lettuce. Squeeze juice from lemon over all and drizzle with olive oil.
4
Season with salt and pepper to taste, then gently but thoroughly toss to combine. Mound onto large platter and serve immediately.
5
Note: Boiled and chilled shrimp may be added for a special treat! The lettuce can be prepped earlier in the day and stored in the refrigerator. The cucumber, tomatoes, olives, peppers, capers and lemon can also be stored together in a covered bowl until serving but keep the feta cheese separate as it has a strong flavor. Amounts can be adjusted to suit your taste.
