Day 30 - Greek Salad Dressing.

Greek Salad, hummus, pretzels.

Remember those gyros I made the other day?  I decided to make some for company last night, along with a hot potato salad and this delicious Greek green salad.  Romaine, spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, olives, and feta cheese with a great Greek Salad Dressing.  Threw in some pretzels and homemade hummus and it was an extremely quick lunch to put together.

Salad dressings are so easy to whisk up, and way cheaper than store bought.  I usually keep olive oil, walnut oil, sesame oil, and a variety of vinegars on hand...that way, I can make up a number of dressings at the last minute!  Some recipes, though, are standards in my house.

Greek Salad Dressing

1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup  red wine vinegar
2 T lemon juice
1 T  fresh oregano, chopped
1 t dried dill
1 t  onion salt
1 t minced garlic
dash of black pepper

Whisk all ingredients together.  This can sit on the counter for a couple of hours while you're cooking, which allows the flavors to mingle. You can also serve it immediately, if you're in a hurry.  Just make sure it's freshly whisked when you pour it on your salad!
