80--- Greek Salad Cups

Greek salads, loaded with healthy fats, can be an easy and satisfying dish to toss together.  This is a little twist that adds a bit of "fancy" to it.  Bring this to your next picnic!

Greek Salad Cups
Serves 6-8

2 heads butter lettuce, washed well and leaves removed
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 red onion, coarsely chopped
1 cucumber, seeded and chopped
4 oz sundried tomatotes (in oil)
4 oz pitted kalmata olives, halved
2 oz crumbled feta cheese
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
Dash ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients, except for lettuce, in a large covered bowl.  Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours prior to serving.  Note: if olive oil turns solid, allow mixture to set at room temperature for 20 minutes prior to serving.

Serve salad in butter lettuce leaf "cups".
