Karen’s Summer Greek Salad with Peaches & Fennel
I’ve added Fresh Summer Peaches and Fennel (found at a farmers’ market) to classic ingredients of the Greek Salad. Adds interesting flavors and natural sweetness.
I use crispy Romaine Lettuce, Local Red Leaf Lettuce, Heirloom Tomatoes, Purple Peppers, Red Onions, Colorful Radishes, Cucumbers, Kalamata Olives, Sheep Milk Feta, Dill and Parsley. The Salad is Topped with my tangy “Shaken” Vinaigrette.
Enjoy the fresh flavors!

- These ingredients are up to your interpretation. Use more or less of the ingredients you desire. In Summer - I shop at local farmers' markets for the best quality fruits & veggies.
- With lettuce on the bottom, layer ingredients on a large serving platter, or to individual plates of bowls. Scatter the parsley and dill on top - drizzle with the "Shaken" Vinaigrette and serve.
*Use any farm-fresh crispy lettuce you like! See: "Shaken" Italian Dressing recipe. This recipe can not be reproduced without the consent of its author, Karen Sheer.
