1/2 cup diced green bell peppers
1/2 cup sliced red onions
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley, lightly packed

Dressing:
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Put lettuce in a large bowl. Add artichokes, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, peppers, parsley, onions, and parsley.

Recipe Notes

  • If you don’t have fresh parsley on hand, add 1 teaspoon dried parsley to the salad dressing.

Comments

  1. The canned artichokes and olives have quite a bit of sodium, they are okay to have?

  2. Yes, and I forgot to mention to rinse them. That’s what I always do. I put them in a colander in the sink and run water over them to remove the extra sodium. Thanks for your question!

  3. I’ve had a taste for this all day, and finally went to the store to get the ingredients. So worth the wait! It is DELICIOUS!

  4. Made this for dinner and I have to say it is very good. Have to add this to my collection.
