12 kalamata olives
1 cucumber, sliced and cut in half
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled

1/3 cup white vinegar
2/3 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon oregano (or more to taste)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper (or more to taste)
1 teaspoon sea salt

For the dressing: combine vinegar, minced garlic, oregano and lemon juice, slowly whisk in olive oil, season with salt and pepper.

* Mama's notes: Never cut lettuce... lettuce should be torn into chunks!
