Greek Salad-bowl

Salad

Place the cucumber, peppers, tomatoes and red onion in a large bowl. Add mint by crushing in between your palms to release the oils.

Vinaigrette

Whisk together the garlic, oregano, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Still whisking, slowly add the olive oil to make an emulsion. Pour the vinaigrette over the vegetables. Add the feta and olives and toss lightly. Set aside for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Just before serving incorporate the lettuce, this will allow it to stay crisp. Serve at room temperature.
