  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese freshly grated to topping

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon oregano dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon season salt I like Lawrys for this recipe
  • 2 green onions finly sliced from the white part all the way up to the top of the green
  • 2 teaspoons parsley fresh, finely chopped

Instructions

  • Combine all dressing ingredients into a glass jar. Screw on a tight-fitting lid. Shake until all ingredients are combined.

Salad

  • Combine lettuce and tomatoes in a medium-size bowl
  • Pour dressing over salad and toss
  • Add pita chips and toss lightly.
  • Top with parmesan cheese if desired

Notes

This is a simple salad recipe however there are a few important tips.
  • Always use fresh, crisp lettuce. I like using a combination of Romain and leaf lettuce.
  • When making the dressing be sure to use fresh, finely chopped parsley.
  • The oregano must be dried.
  • I believe they baked their own pita chips years ago; however, now it is easy to find bagged baked pita chips at your local grocery.
