Delicious Fresh Greek Salad and Dressing!

Thank you to my friend Korinda for giving me the inspiration to make and re-create Greek Salad w/dressing. This was so delicious! If you had some warm whole wheat Pita Bread that would be a nice compliment!     Greek Salad Dressing 2 fresh garlic cloves pressed 1/4 teaspoon sea salt 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard 1/3 to 1/2 cup of a good quality extra virgin olive oil organic 2 tablespoons + fresh lemon juice and the zest of one lemon 1 tsp raw honey 1/2 teaspoon organic brown sugar 4 or 5 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1 to 2 tsp fresh or dried basil leaves 1/2 to 1 tsp fresh or dried oregano leaves *Note use more of fresh herbs than dried. Place all ingredients in a mason jar and shake vigorously. Refrigerate for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!   For the Salad I washed and chopped the following: Organic Romain Lettuce Sliced Red Onion Cucumber Red Bell Pepper (Roasted would be very tasty) But I used raw today. Tomatoes Jarred in water Artichoke Hearts Sliced Avocado Sliced Kalamata Olives Cut in Half Cubed Sheep Milk Feta […]

Honey Lemon Vinaigrette!

2 Tbl spoons of lemon zest 1/3 cup of  lemon juice 2-3 Tbl spoons of olive oil 2-3 Tbl spoons of good Honey 1/2tsp of Dijon mustard 1-2 Tbl spoons of water Sea Salt & fresh ground pepper   This is a great salad dressing! You can make it as sweet or lemony as you like. Play around with the ingredients and make it to your liking! Use a good quality honey and organic lemons!  My favorite Dijon mustard is from Trader Joe’s in the glass jar. It’s a product from Dijon France! The best tasting I’ve found! I like to double the recipe and it works great to mix up the whole thing in a mason jar and keeps well! It never lasts more than a week in my house but it should stay good for up to two weeks! Good time of year with Farmers markets starting up! I love this on any salad spring mix,  kale, arugula & so good on roasted beets! Enjoy! Will post some pics of salads! 🙂 to inspire you!
