Eat your greens - chopped Greek salad

I'm not a huge salad person.  Don't get me wrong, I like them...I'm just not the girl who always orders a salad when I go to a restaurant.  I love french fries & chocolate too much to have that kind of self-control.  However, as I head into my late twenties I am trying to be as healthy as possible during the week -- so I have become addicted to this chopped Greek salad I found over at Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers (really cute & fun blog!).  Find the recipe here.  I skip the raw onions and sometimes I leave off the feta.  I can't decide if I like it or not.  The dressing is delicious -- I probably do 2-3 parts red wine vinegar to 1 part EVOO.  As Natalie says, the key is serving with some delicious pita chips.  Oh, and before you say you don't like olives, are you sure you have tried them?  I swore up and down I didn't like them until we ventured to Italy and now I'm in love.  Just try them.

Speaking of Olive...

Do you know of any other dog whose favorite food is Romaine lettuce? 

Honestly, it's the only food she tries to snatch out of my hand.  SO STRANGE.
