    SALAD (ADJUST TO PREFERENCE)

    DRESSING (ADJUST TO PREFERENCE)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      NOTE: MARINATE SALAD IN REFRIGERATOR FOR 30 MINUTES OR LONGER, THEN RE-SEASON WITH FINE SEA SALT AND RE-TOSS BEFORE SERVING.
    2. 2
      PEEL and slice red onion into 1/4" rings; PLACE onion slices in a bowl of cold water.
    3. 3
      REFRIGERATE bowl of water with onions until needed (the cold soak will diffuse sharpness and/or bitterness).
    4. 4
      PREPARE DRESSING: Finely grate 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon zest. Knead and cut lemons into halves to juice, yielding 1 1/2 tablespoons juice. Whisk together all ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Set aside at room temperature to allow flavors to infuse. FOR A TANGIER DRESSING: Add up to 2 1/2 - 3 tablespoons extra red wine vinegar, plus sugar to balance acidity. FOR A LIGHTER DRESSING: Replace some of the olive oil with kalamata olive brine before adding sea salt, then adjust salt according to taste.
    5. 5
      PREP the remaining vegetables to specifications; DICE the feta cheese into 1-inch cubes.
    6. 6
      REMOVE onions from water and blot dry.
    7. 7
      COMBINE all ingredients except feta cheese in a large bowl.
    8. 8
      POUR the dressing over vegetables and gently toss until evenly blended.
    9. 9
      SPRINKLE top of salad with feta cheese (if desired you can gently fold feta with salad to moisten with dressing).
    10. 10
      SERVE and enjoy.
