My usual preparation of any type of vinaigrette salad, is to add the oil, vinegar & seasonings straight onto the salad. I’ll call this my “toss and taste” method, and once again does not involve a recipe. So adding ingredients to a bowl, I forced myself to measure & taste as I went, and I came up with this dressing recipe. I don’t normally use yogurt, but as I mentioned in another post, I am trying to teach myself to cook with Greek yogurt as a healthier alternative.
2 tablespoons low-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon sugar (or a little of your favorite sweetener to taste)
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice
fresh cracked pepper to taste
1/8 cup no fat feta cheese crumbles
Small to medium sized garden salad (enough for two people)
Combine the yogurt, seasonings, orange juice, vinegar & sugar – mix well. Pour over a prepared garden salad, adding the feta cheese crumbles. Toss thoroughly to coat the salad.
I added some roasted chicken pieces with my portion, for a complete and healthy dinner. Delicious!
