Greek Salad Dressing – Perfection!

IMG_9010

I love Greek salads.  I love the crunchy Romaine leaves, the brininess of the Kalamata olives, the sting of the red onion slices, the juicy tomatoes, the freshness of the cucumber, the tangy flavor of the feta and….

the dressing…

mmmmmmmmmm……the dressing!

Which, made right, makes me want to drink a bottle of it, with or without all of the salad components!

This recipe is perfection.  In that, when it comes to Greek salad dressings, this one hits the nail squarely on the head.

It is also a cinch to make and takes about 5 minutes from start to finish.  What more could you ask for?

Let the savory adventure begin!
