I prefer this meatless, but you may also add tuna if you want - either 2 well-drained cans or a seared tuna steak. From Shape Magazine (June 2005)
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 4 cups romaine lettuce, cut into 1 inch ribbons
- 1 cup carrot, shredded
- 1 cup cucumber, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1 cup tomato, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1 (15 ounce) can white beans, rinsed and drained
- 1⁄3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
- 20 kalamata olives, pitted
- 1 cup herbed croutons
- Whisk together vinegar, oil, oregano, and pepper in a large bowl.
- Add lettuce, carrots, cucumber, tomato, beans, and feta; toss.
- Either divide into 4 small bowls or keep in one large one.
- Top with olives and croutons.
Meh, not all that crazy about this. Was a bit too acidic (too much cider) and didn't feel like the flavours really mixed. Sorry... :(
SUPER FABULOUS LIGHT SALAD!! Can I tell you that my DH and 2 and 4 year olds ate so much of this salad that they barely ate my dinner tonight???? True! I eyeballed the lettuce amount and followed the rest of the recipe to the letter. The dressing was deelish and the addition of white beans (I used great northern beans) was SUPER!!! VERY filling salad! Very flavorful salad! The feta and kalamata's just sent this over the top! Will definitely make this one regularly. Could eat this as a meal! Thank you for posting this wonderful salad!
Did this wonderful salad as is except I omitted the croutons, only cause I don't like them. This salad was really good, I just needed to add a little salt and pepper. Thought it looked really great and colorful. Thanks so much for posting Vino Girl.
