Best Salad Everrrrrr

So I had been googling feta and salads lately because I wanted to try making a dressing that I’d like and because I had a craving for feta.  I found a pasta feta salad recipe and kind of keeping that in mind I came up with this.  Of course measurements may be a bit off, I was just throwing stuff in!

1 Roma Tomato Chopped
Couple handfuls romaine lettuce
½ a cucumber, sliced
½ a yellow cucumber chopped
2 tbsp green olives chopped
2 tbsp chopped sweet onion
1 tbsp olive oil
Dash of balsamic vinegar
2 handful sprinkles feta cheese
Garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste

Put the romaine in a bowl.  Cut up everything and then mix it in with the lettuce.  I used my hands to get it all mixed together well (some people would use the word massage but I hate when I read the words massage and salads on blogs so I will just say I MIXED IT WELL!) Then I measured out the olive oil and poured it over the veggies and once again mixed it together.  Then I sprinkled salt, pepper and garlic pepper in and mixed it.  I tasted and decided it needed something else.. So I dribbled a little balsamic vinegar in and mixed it.  And tada! It was fabulous!!!!

My husband was even jealous of it, because I ate it all and did not share.  He had said he was full and didn’t want one but then when it was so gorgeous he got sad, so I shared a bite. ;)  This definitely could be topped with grilled chicken or add some beans in.  I think I would add some garbanzo beans next time or even some boiled eggs.

What is your favorite homemade salad dressing?
