INGREDIENTS
  • GREEK SALAD
  • 1 pint organic cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled & sliced into 1/2" half-moons
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 12 ounces organic romaine, sliced into 1/2 inch ribbons (wash if necessary)
  • 1 cup olives, sliced in half (black or green)
  • 1/4 toasted pine nuts (sub 1/2 cup any nuts or 1/4 cup any seeds)
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • HUMMUS DRESSING
  • 1/2 cup plain or garlic hummus
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/2 cup water (no I don't count this as an ingredient!)
DIRECTIONS
PREP INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In a Ziplock bag or other large sealable container, combine cherry tomatoes, cucumber, balsamic, basil, oregano, salt, pepper and onion powder. Shake to coat ingredients evenly and refrigerate for at least 4 and up to 24 hours.
  2. In the meantime, combine all Hummus Dressing ingredients in a mason jar or other small sealable container. Shake to incorporate until creamy. Refrigerate.
ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Add romaine to a large salad bowl and top with olives, pine nuts and feta cheese.
  2. Remove marinating tomatoes and cucumbers from the fridge and drain any excess liquid. Add to salad. Add Hummus Dressing to taste, toss and serve immediately.
  3. If you’re planning to have leftovers, I suggest only dressing individual portions. The romaine won’t get too soggy when dressed overnight, but it will gather more liquid in the bottom of the bowl. OPTIONAL OTHER TOPPINGS: shrimp, chicken, avocado, red onion, fresh basil
