Greek Salad

This is a different and extremely tasty take on green salad. It goes well with a variety of meats, and the different flavors and textures make each bite interesting!

Start by making the dressing: combine the oil, vinegar and lemon juice

in a small measuring cup. Add the oregano

and whisk well to combine.

Place the salad greens in a large bowl, and top with the sliced onion.

Add the diced cucumber,

then drizzle the dressing over the salad

and toss to coat. Let the salad "marinate" for 20-30 minutes. (The dressing is not overwhelmingly "wet" so the lettuce shouldn't wilt.) Add the tomatoes, olives,

and artichokes.

Then sprinkle with the feta cheese.
