Aegean Salad

Aegean Salad

Incorporating leafy greens into your diet doesn't mean your food has to taste bland and boring. Arugula is rich in nutrients and adds a touch of spice to mixed greens.
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 bunch arugula
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 6 sprigs spearmint
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 16 kalamata olives
  • 1/8 cup crumbled feta cheese

In a large salad bowl, combine the romaine, arugula, cucumber, tomatoes, and bell pepper. In a food processor, whirl the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, mint, and garlic. Pour the olive oil mixture over the salad and top with olives and cheese.
