Greek Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

Greek Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

Salad

5-6 ounces of your choice of greens (I used part romaine and part arugula)

1/4 of a small red onion, thinly sliced

2 large beefsteak tomatoes or heirloom

1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled

1/4 cup of kalamata olives, halved lengthwise

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper

 

Tzatziki Dressing

1 cup plain yogurt

1/3 cup cucumber, seeded and finely diced

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

1/2 tablespoon mint, chopped

Salt and pepper

 

For the dressing, combine all ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

 

On a large platter, pile on greens and red onion then dress with lemon and olive oil. Lay tomato slices across the top of the greens and then season with a little salt and pepper. Spoon tzatziki dressing down the center of the tomatoes and then sprinkle the entire salad with the feta and olives. Enjoy!

 

Serves 2 as a main and 4 as a side dish
