    evelyn/athens's Note:

    This is the most delicious salad - fresh and wonderful-tasting. FYI, lettuce can very much be a part of any greek salad - if you want it to. We like lettuce in my family and I often add it. It would not be 'authentic' in a Horiatiki (village) salad, but who cares?

      The name of this recipe says it all as this is The Ultimate Greek Salad! This makes a nice large family salad that was enjoyed by all. I made one small change in that I cut the olive oil in half as my lettuce was still fairly moist from washing, other than that made as written. We thought the garlic and oregano were the perfectly proportion to the other ingredients and DH who quite often does not like the stronger flavored onions thought the soaking did a nice job taking the edge off. Thanks for the post.

      Excellent! Superb! I love this dressing and salad. I made as stated but increased the red wine vinegar to three tablespoons and added 1/2 teaspoon of sugar per other recipes I saw. Not too harsh and perfect for the salad. I used light feta in my version. If you are making a good sized salad it's a good idea to double the recipe so you have enough dressing. I'll use this recipe a lot, thanks for posting evelyn/athens!

      I could literally drink this salad dressing, it is so good. I did add about 1/2 teaspoon salt to it, and in the salad I used half baby spinach, and I substituted fresh mozzarella for the feta. I love feta, but had just run out.
