Summer Salad with Feta

This was a delicious, light and tasty lunch one day last week. I used an Italian Dressing I had on hand but am going to offer some ideas for do it yourself dressing. I don't have store bought on hand very often but took the opportunity to make this even fast by grabbing the Italian. Makes 2 large salads.
  • 1 package organic Italian Salad mix (or whatever you prefer for greens)
  • 1 tomato, chopped (not too small)
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 1 small jar marinated artichoke hearts
  • 8-10 kalamata olives
  • 1 small  or about 1/2 cup cucumber, sliced or chopped (depending on the size you want)
  • 1/2 cup soy feta
  • Dressing: 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon of ONE of the following: balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar or lemon juice

Layer all of the salad ingredients on a plate.

Add dressing of your choice.  Toss to combine. Serve.
