Lunch on the Go - Greek salad

Feta cheese will truly make anything delicious. It is, of course, high in fat and you don't want to go too crazy, but a little bit goes a long way, flavor-wise. Pretty much any time I add it to a salad and include oregano, I call it a "greek salad" although that should traditionally be just cucumbers, feta, and tomatoes. Below is a nutritious packed one that includes lots of protein thanks to the beans.

Greek Salad for 1
2 tablespoons feta cheese
1/4 cucumber with slices, chopped into 4
8 cherry tomatoes, sliced
5 kalamata olives, sliced
1/4 cup whatever greens you like
1/4 cup garbanzo beans (I was out so I subbed great norther beans for the photo above and they were great!)
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 green bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoonful of hummus (optional)
Combine all ingredients and it's ready!

Greek dressing
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Combine all ingredients and stir.
