American Greek Salad with Lettuce is a big green salad filled with all the feta cheese, tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers you love! The tangy Greek dressing has the best flavor and is perfect for a giant Greek Salad Platter!


  • 2 Heads of Romaine Lettuce, chopped, washed, and dried
  • 1 pint Grape Tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 large, English Cucumber, diced
  • 2 large Shallots, thinly sliced
  • 4 Green Onions, sliced
  • 4 ounces Feta Cheese, crumbled (the big brick in a brine is best!)


  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • Juice of one Lemon
  • 1 TBS Oregano (if using fresh oregano, use 1/2 tablespoon)
  • 1 Garlic Clove, peeled and plopped into the jar
  • 1 TBS Dijon Mustard
  • 2 TBS Feta Cheese
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper


  1. Prep your Greek Dressing up to a few days ahead of time! Just add all the ingredients into a jar, and give it a really good shake until it’s all incorporated.
  2. For the salad, wash and dry your veggies then chop them all up to whatever size you prefer.
  3. If you’re making a big salad platter like the one pictured, you’ll lay down your lettuce first.
  4. Then, top it with tomatoes, shallots, green onions, cucumbers, and feta cheese.
  5. Serve the dressing on the side, or if you’re serving in a big bowl toss it all together.


I prefer to leave this salad undressed, and allow people to dress their own.
