This week is as simple as it gets. Greek salad is one of my favorite dishes in all its various forms. It is summer, it is hot, and let's just let the produce be the star with out a thought of turning on the oven. In this dish, featured from Main Street Farmers Market are the tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and peppers. If you wanted to take the dish from a hearty side to a main, I would add some chicken from the market. Dress it with what you like on a bed of romaine lettuce, I chose a simple balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing. Grab some oregano and mince it in the dressing to amp up the Greek flavor. This dish is definitely choose your own adventure- no recipe required. It looks great on a platter for a late summer gathering, or enjoyed at home just about any day of the week. Enjoy!
