Rick's Favorite Greek Salad

Melissa Dommert


This is my sweet husband's all-time favorite salad! He fell in love with it and one of our favorite restaurants. I played close attention as we watched the waiter prepare it tableside. After a little trial and error, I was able to duplicate the recipe at home! I think my husband can taste the love that's tossed in with the salad!

How to Make Rick's Favorite Greek Salad


  1. Rinse lettuce and pat dry with paper towels. Thinly slice and place in bowl. Lightly sprinkle Italian seasoning over lettuce.
  2. Add cucumber, grape tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, olives, peppers, capers and feta cheese to lettuce. Squeeze lemon juiceover all and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then gently toss to combine. Mound onto large platter and serve immediately.
  4. Note: Boiled and chilled shrimp may be added for a special treat!

    Lettuce can be prepped earlier in the day and stored in the refrigerator. 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.

    Ingredient amounts can be adjusted to suit your taste.
