Greek-ish Salad

I had this amazing Greek salad over at my friend Jane’s house a while back (pictured here) and I finally had the chance to recreate it last week. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of fresh bell peppers, cucumbers, or tomatoes alone, but the mix of these with the dressing is SOO good! I realized only after I finished, I should have added kalamata olives to the mix… for sure next time! You guys, this salad is so easy, fresh, and good.

Romaine lettuce
Orange and yellow bell pepper

1. Chop and rinse romaine lettuce.
2. Chop up the veggies to the size you desire.
