Greek Salad

One of my favorite salads I order is the Greek Salad at Sammy's. I could live off of it. I decided it is time for me to create my own version of this salad for me to eat at home. So healthy and yummy. I hope you enjoy it!

2 cups Romaine lettuce sliced into small bite size pieces
4 Roma Tomatoes, seeded and cut into cubes
1 red onion,
2 cucumbers, seeded and cut into cubes
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into cubes
1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into cubes
1 cup Kalamata black olives sliced
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 cup cubed feta cheese
1/4 cup  extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Coarse salt and black pepper

In a large bowl combine all ingredients except the oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and oregano. In a small plastic container with a lid.add the oil vinegar and oregano and shake vigorously to combine and pour over salad and feta cheese. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
