It’s been a while since I’ve done a Friday Food blog post, so with summer just around the corner, I thought, how else would I kick off barbecue season other than feature my favourite summer salad!
Greek salad is pretty straight forward, but the secret, I think, is in the dressing!
Kyle makes the most amazing homemade Greek dressing, and it’s so freaking easy! Just three parts red wine vinegar to one part olive oil. Sprinkle of salt, a sprinkle of dried oregano, mix it all around and you’re done!
Here’s how we put together our salad the other night:
- 1 Long English cucumber, chopped
- ½ red onion, chopped
- One red pepper, chopped
- Two hot-house, on the vine tomatoes
- LOTS of Feta cheese :)
- 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Sprinkle of salt
- Sprinkle of dried oregano
Chop your veggies up into a bowl, make your dressing, pour and toss! You can adjust the oregano and salt to taste. I meant to take a photo of the dressing before it went onto the veggies, but I forgot. The ingredients above serves about 4.
I like olives, but Kyle doesn’t, so we omit them.
Delicious, right? Mmm, summer couldn’t get here any sooner! Happy Friday everyone, and Happy Memorial Day long weekend to the folks south of the border! :)
