Warmer days ahead, here we come. I don't know about you, but this spring has been colder than I'd like and I'm in need of some hot sunshine! One of my favorite things about summer is all the salads that enter our dinner menu. A family favorite is Simply Easy Greek Salad. It's simple, it's delicious, and it can stand alone or be paired with pita bread!
Simply Easy Greek Salad is an easy way to get your fill of delicious vegetables with the taste of Mediterranean bliss. It has the delicious taste of fresh cucumber, the satisfying flavor of dill, and lip smacking feta. Try our other similar recipe, Turkish Shepherd Salad.
What Dressing goes with Simply Easy Greek Salad?
This loaded green salad is mixed together with a mouthwatering Tzatziki Dressing. Unlike traditional tzatziki sauce, this dressing is a little runny. This is so it mixes well with all of the vegetables and greens in order to become fully incorporated.
It's an easy sauce to make. All you need to do is place all the ingredients in a a food processor or blender and mix together until almost smooth. There may be some chunks left from the cucumbers, and that's ok. It adds to the texture and fresh feel!
Mix this delicious dressing in with the greens, and vegetables right before serving. I like to wait to mix it all together in order to maintain its freshness. When I know I'm not going to eat it all at once, I often set aside dressing and vegetable mixture in order to mix together later. Top with feta!
My favorite way to eat this delicious salad is with a pita. You can go vegetarian style and only have the salad and pita, or add your favorite Mediterranean spiced chicken or beef. We like to eat it with a soft pita, as opposed to a pita pocket, and fold the salad in the pita as you would a taco. You can't go wrong either way.
Serving guests, (or a party for yourself!) make this meal complete with Chocolate Revel Bars.Print
