Mint Meal 3: Greek Salad

Yummy, yummy Greek salad

Our third (but really second…) mint meal was a delicious Greek salad.  We also had potatoes and chicken (with oregano and salt and pepper) with the Greek salad.

My Greek salad dressing making skills needed some assistance, so I took to the internet for some tips.  I found the perfect and uber-delicious dressing mix on the Pioneer Woman Cooks blog.

The dressing included:

  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil  Duh! Hadn’t crossed my mind before…
  • 2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar I usually use way too much vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar (more To Taste)  Didn’t think of this either
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced  A first on the garlic too…You’d think I’ve never made Greek salad before…
  • 6 whole Kalamata Olives (extra), Chopped Fine  Genius! Why hadn’t I thought of this?!
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 whole Lemon, For Squeezing

I HIGHLY recommend the Pioneer Woman’s Greek salad.  It’s so, so good!!

PLEASE NOTE: I did not include lettuce in my Greek salad like the Pioneer Woman does, but I’m sure it’s delicious with or without the lettuce.
