This is a fantastic salad and can be easily adapted to what you have available. If you don’t have any feta  you can always sub it with some fresh grated Parmesan.

Grill and serve as a salad over romaine with cucumbers, tomatoes, a bit of feta, red onion and a few kalamata olives w/dressing below or as a sandwich in 100% whole wheat pita pocket.

Dressing Ingredients

  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
