Ingredients

  • 1 heart romaine lettuce rinsed and dried (inner leaves)
  • 4 cups mixed young greens such as baby spinach, watercress, curly endive, arugula, mizuna
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt plus more to taste
  • Black pepper in a mill
  • 1/4 cup fruity olive oil Plus more to taste
  • 3 Tbsp Italian parsley minced
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives pitted and sliced in half
  • 4 to 6 ounces Redwood Hill Farm Raw Goat Milk Feta cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • 4 scallions trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp oregano dried, Greek

Instructions

  1. Tear the romaine leaves into bite-size pieces and place them in a large salad bowl with the other greens.
  2. In a small non-reactive bowl, combine the lemon juice, salt, and several turns of black pepper. Stir to dissolve the salt. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, taste, and correct the seasoning; if the dressing is too tart, add a little more olive oil.
  3. Pour the dressing over the greens and toss quickly until the greens are evenly coated.
  4. Scatter the parsley, olives, feta, scallions, and oregano over the salad, toss again, and serve.
