How to Use Greek Dressing
This Greek dressing recipe is really versatile, so have fun experimenting with different ways to use it. Here are a few of my favorites:
- On my easy Greek Salad! I love how the tangy dressing plays off the fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, bell pepper, rich feta cheese, and briny kalamata olives.
- On my Cucumber Tomato Salad. Can you tell that this dressing tastes great with tomatoes and cucumbers?
- On my Italian Chopped Salad. Substitute this Greek salad dressing for the lemon vinaigrette.
- On any green salad. Drizzle it over your favorite greens to make a tasty side salad, or add croutons, roasted chickpeas, hard boiled eggs, and/or chopped fresh veggies to make it a meal.
- On roasted veggies. Spoon it onto roasted cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, fennel, or potatoes after they come out of the oven.
- On grilled veggies. I love drizzling Greek salad dressing over grilled zucchini, potatoes, asparagus, corn, or grilled veggie skewers.
- Or on cooked grains, beans, or lentils. Toss cooked lentils, white beans, farro, or quinoa with Greek dressing and fresh herbs to make a hearty side dish.
