Greek Salad



Today I restocked all of my fruits, vegetables and herbs. I love it when I have a full fridge and pantry to choose ingredients from. One of my great friends knows this about me and guess what she did!?!? She bought me an herb garden! For no reason at all! I was so surprised! It was so sweet! She even picked out the perfect spot in my sunny backyard for it. Thank you again! I love it!!!
 Having fresh herbs and veggies, I figured time for a great salad! 


Gluten Free Greek Salad 

1/4 cup teaspoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1 teaspoon fresh chopped oregano
1 teaspoon fresh chopped basil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 head of romaine cleaned and chopped
2 roma tomatoes, diced
1 cup diced cucumber
4 tablespoons diced red onion
1/2 cup sliced black olives
optional Crumbled Feta Cheese


To make the dressing, place the olive oil, garlic , oregano, basil, pepper, salt, onion powder, dijon mustard, and red wine vinegar into a blender and pulse until blended well.
In a large bowl, toss Romaine, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Red onion, and black olives.
Pour Dressing over salad and Serve immediately.

  1. Goodness gracious... you and I must be on the same wavelength. The other day you made the lasagna cups that I was thinking about and we both seemed to make Greek salad this weekend. I made one today for a light lunch. I went to the Asian market and filled my fridge with new produce so it was a great way to use up a lot of it... too funny that we thought the same thing. :) I love your herb pot! I put seeds out on my deck in pots... but I'm thinking they didn't take. Okay... now what shall we cook next... send me a mental message. LOL! :) Have a great weekend! ~ Ramona

  2. Hmmm, maybe I'll have the recipe and make it for myself!
    Sadly, one hates raw tomatoes, cucumbers, and feta; and the other hates olives and any dressing that isn't ranch. Silly people!
