I'll start off by saying that I'm usually super skeptical of "simple" dressings that can be "thrown" together, mostly because I always feel like something is lacking and then, to try to make up for it, I end up mixing in just a ridiculous amount of ingredients to make it taste better, and then it doesn't. Today I had an unwavering craving for Greek salad, mostly for the feta cheese that I have hanging out in my freezer, I ALMOST used Italian dressing on my salad before taking a leap of faith and mixing-and-matching a few recipes I found online. And...win!!!
This stuff was super delicioso, bold and greeky and not too lemony or olive oily or anything -oey like that.
I even used the dressing as my chicken marinade, and dare I say that it was equally delicious as both a marinade AND salad dressing.
Seriously, look at this stuff. Look at all of the colors and textures!! Seriously, I can't believe that I made this. It's just the perfect ratio of thick - to - thinness; it coats the lettuce incredibly but lightly while sticking to the chicken in such a great way. And oh, yeah, I I added a few leftover teaspoons to my steak marinade which, OMG, has to be a post for another day!!
Please forgive the colorlessness of this picture, but also please take in those plump pepperoncinis and the gorgeous layers of the dressing, plus that feta. BTW, this is feta that's been in my freezer for a few months! I had no idea that you could freeze feta, but I am here to attest that yes, you can freeze feta and yes, it comes out just as good as non-frozen!!
Food is my absolute passion. The highlight of my day is when I get to cook, and especially eat. I'm super simple. I don't have crazy fancy ingredients. I just try to cook delicious, healthy (most of the time) meals for my mister and I.
