Greek Salad Dressing

Salad has become my go-to lunch these days.  I’ve been trying lots of different salads, but my default salad on a busy day is a Greek Salad.  I LOVE Greek Salad!  It’s the feta, the olives, and the dressing that I love the most.

Here’s what I put on my Greek salads: red and green romaine, spinach, red bell peppers, carrots, mushrooms, kalamata olives, feta cheese, grilled chicken (using the marinade from this recipe), and pine nuts.  Occasionally I add cherry tomatoes.  Tomatoes are one of those things I’m learning to enjoy more.

A long time ago, my mom showed me how easy it is to make your own Greek Salad Dressing instead of purchasing a bottle of it.  I used to just throw my dressing together with no measuring, but recently I tried the recipe below.  It contains all the ingredients I was already using, but these measurements get the flavor just right.
