Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 leek, white and pale green parts only, cut into 3-inch julienne
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled, quartered lengthwise, and sliced crosswise 1/3 inch thick
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives, halved
  • 1 Romaine heart, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 6 ounces store-bought stuffed grape leaves, halved
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 4 ounces Greek feta cheese

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat vegetable oil in an 8-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Fry leeks in batches until golden brown, about 2 minutes per batch, and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

  2. Step 2

    In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar, salt, pepper, and oil. Add cucumber, tomatoes, and kalamata olives and toss to combine.

  3. Step 3

    Spread out Romaine on a large platter and cover with dressed vegetables. Top with grape leaves, chickpeas, leeks, and feta and serve.

    This is a great salad. I followed the recipe exactly and my husband and I loved it. Plan to do it for company next.

    Made this tonite without the leek and feta. Added radish in place of chickpeas. I thought was good, my husband thought the dressing was bland.

    Tried the salad for dinner tonight. Everyone really liked it. Did not use fried leeks, just cut up green onions instead. Will make again. A nice light easy salad to make.
