Ingredients

  • 2 heads romaine lettuce chopped, about 6 cups
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes quartered
  • 1 cup chopped Persian cucumbers
  • 15 ounce can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup red onions finely chopped
  • ¼ cup Kalamata olives pitted sliced
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped

For the dressing

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove pressed
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Assemble the salad in a large bowl by placing the chopped lettuce first, then arranging lines of the remaining ingredients on top of the chopped lettuce.
  • To prepare the dressing, whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing in a small mason jar until emulsified.
  • When ready to serve, pour the dressing on top of the salad. Garnish with parsley. Toss if you prefer to keep the salad untossed for best presentation.

Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 3-4 days in the fridge. For best results, only toss the salad with the dressing immediately before serving.
Make Ahead Tips: You can make the dressing up to 3 weeks in advance and double or triple the recipe to have it on hand for other salads or even as a marinade.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However the salad itself is very adaptable so feel free to add or change any of the ingredients
