Greek Salad with Pita Bread

Along with the Guinness Stew I made Greek Salad and decided to try the recipe in the Epcot Food and Wine Festival cookbook. Normally I wouldn’t use a recipe for Greek salad, but since a lot of the Epcot recipes are basic (things like cabbage rolls, lasagna etc.) I figured I might as well give it a try. It was actually very good, and everyone who tried it liked it a lot.

BTW, the recipes the countries use in the Epcot Food and Wine Festival seem to be recycled frequently over the years. I mean does China EVER serve something other than Sha Cha Chicken?? Or does Canada ever have a dish without maple syrup? A lot of the recipes in the 2007 book can be found all over the Internet from previous years.

Greek Salad with Pita Bread
Epcot Food and Wine Festival, Greece
Serves 6

3 Vine-ripened tomatoes, cut into ½” thick wedges
1 red onion, sliced into thin rings
1 cucumber, peeled and cut into ½” cubes
2 small green bell peppers, seeded and cut into thin strips
1 cup Kalamata olives (I used pitted)
6 ounces feta cheese, coarsely crumbled
2 cups shredded Romaine lettuce

Dressing
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons dried oregano
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Pita Bread

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the salad ingredients.
2. Season the salad with the lemon juice, olive oil, and oregano. Toss all the ingredients until they are well coated with the dressing and add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Divide the salad among 6 plates and serve accompanied with warm toasted pita bread.

The Disney Cinnamon Rolls recipe is great! I made them yesterday. Maybe I didn't do it quite right, but they weren't exactly like they are there (they never are, right) but the recipe is far superior to any cinnamon roll recipe I've ever tried. Thanks!

I made the Cinnamon Rolls a couple of weeks ago and they were a big hit! Thanks for your review, westcliffemom!

I'm still surprised how good this was considering the only tomatoes I could find were clearly not vine-ripened and the green pepper was downright bitter! I know this would be even better in the summer.

I love cooking Greek recipes. So often they are simple recipes with "simple" ingredients yet with tremendous flavor! The dressing in this recipe is a perfect example. Of course, I would leave out the olives. I know, strange for a person who loves Greek food! heehee I love bread dipped in good olive oil, yet olives are nasty! And then there are grapes and capers. The only three things I will not eat!

Okay, I think I found one that's not listed. While I absolutely love the Almond Crusted Cheesecake at Narcoossee's, my niece feels the same way about the White Chocolate Cheesecake at Kona's. In fact, when we were able to arrange for her to join us on our last visit (as a surprise for my DD8-DN25 is in Utah at grad school) the thing she wanted to make sure of was that we were going to go to Kona's during her visit. I assured her that we would be going twice, once on the night of her arrival-she was very happy! And while she liked the one at Narcoossee's, her heart still lies with the one from Kona.

I tried doing a search and couldn't find it anywhere-anyone have it?

TIA!
