Greek Salad

Submitted by: JUNICA

Introduction

Funny little recipie i got and it's missing olives, red onions cause we don't like those, and you can marinade some chicken with the dressing to add more protien. you will want to do that a few hours in advance. but we like it just as it is. Can be served with pita bread that's been quartered, brushed with the dressing and toasted in the oven.

Nutritional info is without the optionals.

Ingredients

    Salad ~
    1 cucumber peeled, cut in 8th and sliced
    1 pkg of grape tomatos cut in half
    1 8oz package of feta cheese, crumbled
    1 bag of spinach (can use baby)
    1 box of penne pasta cooked
    red onion, diced (optional)
    black olives (optional)
    cooked and marinated meat (optional)

    Dressing~
    4 oz red wine vinegar
    1-2 tsp oregano
    1/8 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1 tbsp sugar
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    2 cloves garlic (i use a press)
    4 oz extra light olive oil

Directions

Start the water for the noodles. Mix all the ingrediants for the dressing except the oil. Cook the noodles according to box and personal choice (i like mine cooked about a minute longer because they firm up as they cool). While that is cooking i peal and cut the cucumber and the tomatos. Place in a big bowl. Crumble in the feta cheese. When the noodles are done I rinse them in cool water till they are cool and drain. Add noodles to tomatos and cucumbers. Add oil to the dressing and put about a tbsp on the noodles to keep them from sticking. Add the feta cheese. I normally don't add the spinach till about 5 minutes before serving. If you want to eat this salad over a few days, do not mix the spinach in. Just mix them together as you want to eat it.
