Pinterest Party & Link-Up (vol 30): Greek Salad

Sorry for the delay in this post but better late than never! Starting in October, the RoL Pinterest Party will be held once a month on the first Tuesday of the month. Have fun!

Welcome to the RoL Pinterest Party. Join me as we link up and share how we made, cooked, baked, crafted, planned, organized, followed or created one of the pins on our Pinterest boards OR share something original that others can pin onto their boards.

Not on Pinterest? No problem. Link-up your own creation to inspire us so we can pin in to our own boards. It can be a recipe, sewing project, Catholic craft, homeschool project, organizing/ homemaking tip, themed birthday party, whatever you’d like.

Don’t have a post ready? The link-up will be open for 10 days so there’s still time. Plus, feel free to link up a new post or an older post that hasn’t had much traffic lately. šŸ™‚

PLEASE NOTE: Because we are entering the busy season of Autumn and the holidays that follow, starting in October, I will be doing the Pinterest Party only once a month. It will be every first Tuesday of the month and the link up will be open for 30 days, so there is plenty of time to join the fun! šŸ™‚

The pin for this post is here.

Years ago I found a recipe online for Greek salad. I have adapted the recipe since then and it has become my favorite salad dressing. A friend asked for the recipe so I thought I’d post it here. šŸ™‚

Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tsp spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar

For the salad:

  • spring mix (or lettuce of choice)
  • red bell pepper
  • cucumber
  • red onion (thinly sliced)
  • kalamata olives
  • tomatoes
  • feta cheese

For the salad, quarter the cucumber and slice. Quarter the bell pepper and thinly slice. Take a small section of onion and thinly slice. Place in a large bowl with the lettuce, olives and tomato. Sprinkle with feta. Mix.

For the dressing, whisk together the olive oil, mustard and spices. When mixed, slowly add the red wine vinegar and whisk well. Pour overt the salad and mix well. Enjoy!

Note – A little dressing goes a long way. Better to under dress the salad and need to add more than to over dress and the salad puckers your lips. šŸ˜‰ This recipe makes roughly 6 oz of dressing. Keep it stored in closed contained at room temperature for a few days. I store mine in a OXO Good Grips Salad Dressing Shaker.

These are great to store home dressings. It comes in the large ( 1.5 cups) or the small (1 cup). I use the small one for this dressing since I like to use it up within the week and make another fresh batch. It’s super easy and tastes great.

Since I am eating many salads these days and staying away from bottled dressing, I am always looking for healthier home versions. If you have a favorite dressing recipe, please share it in the comment box. I’d love to try it out!
