Working Mom Meals....Greek Salad

In case you haven't noticed...Summer is coming.   This also means I will have to squeeze myself into a bathing suit and head down to the pool with Jack.  Panic mode has set in a bit and I am trying to eat a bit healthier.  

This greek salad from Annie's Eats,  will not disappoint.  It is light, healthy, super quick, and tastes amazing!  We had this for a meal along with some toasted garlic pita that I made. 
I think this is one of those salads that I will be adding to my weekly rotation of meals. 

Greek Salad (adapted from Annie's Eats)
For the dressing:
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 tbsp. minced fresh dill
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

For the salad:
Romaine lettuce
Sliced red onions
kalamata olives
sliced green pepper
Grape tomatoes, halved
Cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
Crumbled feta cheese

To make the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together  all the dressing ingredients until well combined.

To make the salad, add romaine lettuce to a salad bowl.  Drizzle with the dressing and toss well to coat.  Top as desired with red onions, black olives, tomatoes, cucumber,  green pepper, and feta cheese.  Store leftover dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and shake well before using again.
