How to Make Rick's Favorite Greek Salad


  • 1Rinse 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.
  • 2Sprinkle with oregano; cover and place in refrigerator until serving time.
  • 3At 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.
  • 4Season with salt and pepper to taste, then gently but thoroughly toss to combine. Mound onto large platter and serve immediately.
  • 5Note: 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.
