Very easy to make and very delicious! Use quality ingredients. Substitute another variety of imported olives of your choice-nicoise, gaeta, etc. From Weekend Magazine, July/August 2006.

I really liked the simplicity of this salad. The salty mizithra cheese was perfect with the dressing. This was a really great start to my Valentine's Day dinner. Thanks.

  1. In a small non-reactive bowl whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients except for the oil.
  2. Slowly pour in the olive oil while whisking. Set dressing aside.
  3. Remove the root ends from each head of lettuce and cut the heads in half crosswise. Then cut the heads in three parts lengthwise.
  4. Arrange the slices neatly on a serving platter. Garnish with the Kalamata olives and spoon the vinaigrette over the salad.
