Not bad! While nothing compares to a fresh salad at one of Chicago's well-known Greek restaurants, this was a pretty darn good! Other than the dressing being a *tad* bitter for my liking, I really enjoyed this. I didn't detect the bright, citrus note that I am accustomed to, but I think that may gave been my fault.... I used the juice of a Meyer lemon and think that may be the reason my dressing didn't turn out as I had hoped it would (FYI, Meyer lemons have a sweeter, less acidic flavor than the common supermarket variety). To make this salad a bit more "authentic," I did a little doctoring (I know, I know...). I sliced my cucumber and onion, cut my tomatoes into wedges, added a few peperoncini peppers and tossed everything with crisp Iceberg lettuce - voila! I can now enjoy a big fat Greek salad just the way I like it. :) Thanks for sharing your recipe, Jen. This lovely salad paired perfectly with my Mediterranean-inspired main dish! :-)
