My Favorite Salad

Whenever we go to events with this one set of family friends there is always this amazing salad there. I finally asked who makes it, what's in it, and why it's so darn good. Since the first time I made this salad I have made it over and over again. I could just eat it all day. I love how the feta softens into the lettuce, I love the simplicity of the oil and vinegar based salad dressing, and I just love the pleasant taste. This salad is essentially like Greek salad but it's missing olives. Add in some olives and that's where you'd be. Love it- give it a shot with the last of the summer produce.
