In the Kitchen

Greek Salad Dressing

I had the privilege of growing up in a home where almost everything was home made. My mom is an excellent cook, as I’ve mentioned before, and she has passed down many wonderful recipes I now use in my own kitchen. Since so many of the items I grew up with were home made, I sometimes have a difficult time eating “already prepared” versions of some foods. One of those foods I prefer to have homemade is salad dressing. Salad dressings are really easy to make and you can whip them in less than 5 minutes. They don’t contain any preservatives, but will also last in the fridge for several weeks. In the coming months, I plan to share several salad dressings with you. Today, I will start with one of my favourites-greek dressing! This version of greek dressing has an oil and vinegar base instead of a cream base, which I prefer. I throw some lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, feta and black olives in a bowl, top it with this dressing and some chicken breast, and you have a simple and healthy, yet delicious, meal.
