A Greek salad does not contain lettuce traditionally but I like to make it with Butter or Bibb lettuce, and lots of it.
Dressing is a personal thing. I like different ratios of oil:vinegar for different salads. This one is pretty tart - add more oil, up to about 5 T for the combined 2T of acid (vinegar plus lemon juice).
