  2. Divide romaine among 4 dinner plates. Top with sliced meat, red onion, halved tomatoes, and feta cheese. Drizzle with Lemon Vinaigrette.

shredded lemon peel; 3 tablespoons lemon juice; 1 tablespoon snipped fresh oregano or
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed; and 2 cloves garlic, minced. Cover and shake well.
Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

    My fiance and I are getting married June next year. Our two families combined are going to do the catering ourselves – we’d like to do a cold salad buffet for around 80 hungry guests. We’ve got a few good ideas on what to add to the feast, but would love some more.
    I’m looking for some original ideas from all you culinary genius’s out there!
    Many thanks in advance.
    Wow! Brilliant ideas so far from all of you – thank you culinary genius’s!
    And happy 40th anniversery Anthony J!

    just list things pleaseeee (or give me some tips to dieting if you want to!)
    thanks!
    yea!
    I plan on exercising along with this.
    the word diet is bad…. It makes your body think it’s starving itself.
    i should have just said give me tips on becoming healthier!

    Also, what is a food you can eat a lot of (not a lot but hopefully you understand what i’m saying) and it’s not that bad for you?
