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.
For the Salad I washed and chopped the following:
Organic Romain Lettuce
Sliced Red Onion
Red Bell Pepper (Roasted would be very tasty) But I used raw today.
Jarred in water Artichoke Hearts Sliced
Kalamata Olives Cut in Half
Cubed Sheep Milk Feta
And the dressing above!
As always I try to use as many Organic ingredients as possible.
