Recipe of the Week: Greek Vinegarette

My friend and I made this recipe for a salad I was serving for our small group dinner. We made it in a blender. It made enough to fill an empty salad dressing jar and a small bowl. Cut it in half if you want a smaller amount.

Greek Vinegarette

1 Tbs. Dijon Mustard
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. dried basil
3/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/3 cup olive oil
2/3 cup Canola oil
1 Tbs. & 1 tsp. honey
3 Tbs. feta
approx. 15 olives (any kind)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Mix first 10 ingredients in a blender. Add feta, olives, and salt and pepper and mix.

From my experience: This was pretty easy to make since it all got thrown in to the blender, and it was so delicious! Everyone really liked the dressing. It had a tangy taste from the yummy feta cheese and olives because I used green, but you can use any kind you have on hand. This recipe can be varied based on your likes. Enjoy!
