Easy Chopped Greek Salad

To the young me, a Greek salad was one thing: chopped iceberg lettuce topped with wan slices of pale pink tomato; watery cucumber; red onion that may have seen better, less stinky days; a few token canned black olives; and a ladleful or two of "Greek" dressing, which as far as I could tell was a cross between ranch and Caesar, with some crumbled feta cheese crumbled into it. I'm a much bigger fan of real deal Greek salads—the kind that are made of cucumber and really good tomato and feta and herbs and real lemon and awesome olive oil and stuff. Doesn't that sound much better than gloppily-dressed iceberg? (Who am I kidding? I also love gloppily dressed iceberg...) More
