Greek Salad

12 04 2011

I don’t know what it is but lately I have been craving a nice big Greek salad or Greek flavored chicken with Tzatziki sauce. I guess it has been awhile since I have had that combination of flavors.  So today I am posting a great Greek Salad dressing recipe to put on your Greek Salad. The chicken and Tzatziki will come in a few days so keep your eyes peeled for it.

Greek Salad

Dressing

~ 1/2 cup olive oil

~ 1/4 cup canola oil

~ 2-3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

~ 3 tsp. dried oregano

~ 3 tsp. minced garlic

~ 1 tsp. dried basil

~ 1 tsp. fresh mint leaves, chopped fine (optional)

~ 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

~ 1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste)

~ 1 tsp. sugar

~ 1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper (or to taste)

Salad

~ lettuce

~ tomatoes

~ feta

~ cucumbers

~ Kalamata olives

~ red onion

~ bell peppers

 

1. Combine all the dressing ingredients in a jar cover and shake well. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours so the flavors have time to blend together.

2. Place your desired salad ingredients together in a bowl and pour dressing over, enough to coat lightly. Toss to combine.
