Lemon-Infused Greek Salad
with Grape Leaves

Serves 8

The final additions to this salad—toasted pita wedges and grape leaves—add some substance and texture to this classic salad. If you have a good source for prepared grape leaves, use them any time you want a quick and satisfying salad that is substantial enough to feature as a main course.

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper as needed
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1-1/2 lb romaine hearts, rinsed, dried, and torn into pieces
  • 1 cup Greek olives, cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 cups sliced, peeled seedless cucumber
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 yellow pepper (seeded, thinly sliced)
  • 1 red onion, sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 2-1/4 cups crumbled feta
  • 4 whole wheat pitas, toasted, cut into 16 wedges
  • 16 Stuffed Grape Leaves (page 110 of the book)

1. Combine the lemon juice, vinegar, parsley, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and stir until the salt is dissolved. Add the canola and olive oils in a stream, whisking constantly, until the oil is blended into the dressing. Season with additional salt and pepper, if needed.

2. Place the cleaned romaine into the salad bowl. Add the sliced olives, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, pepper, and red onion to the mixing bowl. Toss the salad ingredients together with the vinaigrette until evenly coated.

3. Top with the feta and garnish with the pita wedges and stuffed grape leaves.
