Greek Salad, is there anything better?

This picture really doesn't do this salad justice. I was just entirely way too hungry to take a bunch of artistic pictures. I wanted to dig in ASAP! This was really easy to make and the dressing was to-die for!

Greek Dressing Ingredients:
Makes enough for a few salads :)
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup olive oil
2-3 cloves pressed or minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
pinch of dried thyme
big pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper

Combine lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, thyme and salt and pepper in bowl.  Using a whisk, slowly stream in olive oil and whisk into vinegar mixture.  You will see it thicken up a bit (emulsifying) while combining.  Store in a jar with a tight lid in the refrigerator after using.  Always give the dressing jar a couple of shakes before serving.  In my opinion, best at room temperature, so take it out a few minutes before using.

Salad Ingredients:
Add any, some, or all of the following:
chopped romaine lettuce
chopped green and red peppers
chopped cucumbers
chopped tomatoes
sliced red onion
feta cheese, cubed or crumbled
kalamata olives
