Cucumber and Shrimp Salad with Feta Vinaigrette
This recipe serves: 4  

For the vinaigrette:
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
pinch sugar
freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano or 1/4 teaspoon dried
2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

For the salad:
1 cucumber, peeled, halved, seeded and sliced
2 tomatoes, cored and cut into wedges
1/4 cup pitted, halved kalamata olives
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 pound steamed shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt to taste
2 pieces pita bread, cut into wedges

Cooking Instructions
1. In a mixing bowl, whisk the vinegar, sugar, pepper, oregano and feta cheese together. Slowly whisk in the olive oil.
(This can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.)

2. Combine the cucumber, tomatoes, olives, onion and shrimp in a large mixing bowl. Add the vinaigrette and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. (This can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. The salad actually gets better as the vegetables marinate in the vinaigrette for a day or two.) 3. Serve with wedges of pita bread.
