Garden Salad with Yogurt Feta Vinaigrette

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.  

Ingredients:

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)

Directions:

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.

Recipe Notes:

I added some roasted chicken pieces with my portion, for a complete and healthy dinner.  Delicious!
