Greek Salad and Dressing

19 Jan

I’m still looking for great recipes to try using my feta.  When my family was coming for Christmas eve, I decided to try another salad.  The salad itself is quite simple–just chop some cucumbers, tomatoes, onion and feta.  I left it mixed and chilling in the refrigerator until just before serving.

Greek Dressing

Mix together:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1 clove garlic (pressed/minced)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. brown mustard

The dressing has an olive oil base.  I confess I’m not a fan of oily dressings, so I used my extra light olive oil and added the spices.

Then I added the rest of the ingredients.

I shook it in my jar, and it was ready.

Right before serving, I drizzled some of the dressing on and mixed it up.

I think it turned out quite delicious!

I even like the dressing on just a lettuce salad too.
