Greek Summer Salad

When the mercury rises in the summer, a crisp cool summer salad always seems like a good idea.  Tucking into a plateful of crunchy, chilled lettuce mixed with the current bounty of the season just feels right.  Here is an amazing one to try – be SURE to use the freshest, best ingredients you can find – the quality of the ingredients truly makes or breaks any salad. Top with grilled chicken and have some toasted pita or Naan bread on the side to make it a complete meal.  Let us know what you think!

Dressing:

  • In a blender, combine the vinegars, mustard, salt, pepper, red pepper, and garlic and puree. With the motor running, very slowly pour in a steady stream of olive oil to make a smooth dressing. Repeat with the canola oil.Transfer the dressing to a glass storage container and mix in the oregano. Taste the dressing and season with salt, if necessary.  Assemble the salad and toss!  Leftover dressing will keep in the fridge for a week.
