Ten on Tuesday - 5/31/2011 - Salad Mix

This week, Carole asks what us to tell Ten Things to Put in a Salad.  I lurve me a good salad.  I especially like Greek salads, being Greek and all...

I will eat all kinds of other salads though, but here are my usual Ten Things to Put in a Salad:
1. Lettuce - Iceberg is best for Greek salads, but spring mix will work.
2. Tomatoes - I sure like homegrown tomatoes, but they are not always available...especially if one doesn't plant any...
3. Cucumbers - In my salad, they should be chunky cut.
4. Onions - I like the red ones the best.
5. Celery - Can't have too much crunch, as far as I am concerned.
6. Feta cheese - Love the stuff...
7. Kalamata olives - I prefer the pitted ones, but the ones with pits will do.
8. Olive oil  - It does not have to be EVOO.
9. Vinegar - anything from plain white to red wine vinegar to balsamic...
10. Salt and pepper.

There you have it.

MK out.

Yummo!! One of the funniest things ever was when my youngest son called wanting the recipe to the salad I made. It was usually just lettuce, dried cranberries and almonds or whatever nuts I had on hand. He wanted to make it for a party! ha ha
